    There will be enough to fill both her Rayburn offices and the Speaker's office in the Capitol, and it will greatly improve the smell in both buildings!  Nice visuals too.

      This is a very fun and uplifting activity for the flower purchasers on our end, and the spectacle of thousands of flowers delivered to Speaker Pelosi sends an incredibly worthwhile and positive message: Dems, we have your back.  We're not listening to the GOP's HCR fearmongering and we have the backs of Dems, some of whom expect to lose their seats for the HCR vote!  We are changing the media narrative of November, bit by bit.

      I hope that anyone who wants to participate in this, does so.  It's an incredibly classy gesture and when I open my newspaper on Saturday, I'd love to see a picture of the Speaker surrounded by roses of approval and appreciation.

      Keep donating everyone!
