While these are mostly House members, there is one Senator participating, Roger Marshall of Kansas, which makes Rand Paul’s absence noteworthy. We know why Rand’s not joining but it just again throws into relief what a shitty doctor he is. If he can’t even grudgingly admit that the Coronavirus vaccines save lives then he should have his medical license revoked. Same goes for any healthcare practitioner in Congress who won’t grab their balls and do the right thing.
