Trump should call Heitkamp
President-elect Donald J. Trump
I supported you — and even predicted your final electoral vote count on my Facebook page – but this isn’t a victory lap; it’s an important suggestion. But before that, — I offer my hearty congratulations to you and your wonderful family. May God Bless you, and the American people.
Please don’t repeat Obama’s mistake and pass anything major with partisan vote counts. I noticed today you are open to keeping some of the more popular provisions of Obamacare and I noticed something peculiar about the list. It’s identical to a compromise list a DEMOCRATIC Senator, Heidi Heitkamp, tried to get passed, while Obama was President.
She’s a courageous, bright, bi-partisan minded woman who would make a great Democrat for your cabinet and in particular, the ideal person to head a compromise drafting group, an honor she has earned with her honesty on this issue in the face of withering condemnation by her colleagues. Check her out, you’ll be impressed, a former State Treasurer and Prosecutor, married to a Dr., a Mom, but a pragmatic one.
That’s my suggestion, reach out to Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota, a woman who can move your agenda on this issue – because it’s also hers.
