    Reducing the flow maybe. I think cutting off the supply altogether is a bit optimistic. The lies have already started with the reneging on the $2000 stimulus cheque promised during the senate race. If you are gonna start offering cash for votes its only right and proper to actually pay up.

    Rep. Kinzinger: They claim ‘I’m possessed by the devil’ : The Illinois Republican has launched a website as an effort to refocus the Republican Party’s “conservative principles.” https://www.politico.com/news/2021/01/31/adam-kinzinger-republican-party-464140
    Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, is launching a political action committee to push back against a House GOP leadership team and party that he says have become too closely aligned to the former president. https://apnews.com/article/donald-trump-politics-impeachments-adam-kinzinger-political-action-committees-3e221ef16b7324026a280729da68ee0c
    The “Country 1st” PAC, unveiled in a six-minute video released Sunday, will challenge the current direction of a GOP that Kinzinger says has wrongly become a “Trump-first party” to the detriment of the nation, as seen by the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.
