Democrats should call for a day of mourning for those who've died of COVID.

Democrats in Congress and state legislatures should also call for a 10% reduction in Congressional/legislative pay like so many Americans across the country have taken. Solidarity.

These kinds of things are what the average person understands and would remind everyone that Democrats are the party of the regular person.

2. Wouldn't that lead to lowering flags to half mast

And of course the occupier would never go for that. It would be a direct symbol of his failure(s).

3. Congress should pass a resolution making it a paid day for national mourning.

Throw it in front of the republicans in the House an senate, call for an electronic vote so we have names, and make them show the world if they really care. No voice vote, they have to own the shame if they vote no.

4. Yes. We need to be the party that leads in our mourning.

Trump is busy congratulating himself and having a pity party about how everyone hate him.

We need to show the nation what true empathy and leadership looks like and in the process make Trump look like an even bigger fool.

Compassion for the dead and their families. Empathy for all who have suffered. Solidarity with the workers. vs the GOP.

5. They will be the only ones offering a day of mourning, if they do it.

Trump will never do it. He cannot even pretend to care. He is that much of a prick.

6. Exactly. We do what is right. He will either foolishly resist or cave to public pressure.

Win win for the good guys.
