In her sustained race to the bottom of the 2020 presidential race, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., the feminist embroiled in not one but two #MeToo scandals, got ratio’d into oblivion for quite the proposal: legislation to limit opioid prescriptions for acute pain to seven days.
In all seriousness, it’s the sort of ham-fisted failure to address a legitimate issue that’s characterized the pathetic excuse of the Gillibrand campaign. It’s not a far cry from what she and the late Sen. John McCain proposed back in 2017, but the timing for Gillibrand couldn’t be worse.
The article goes on to state the following:
The ratio of 14 replies per like on her opioid proposal tweet is just the cherry on top of the beginning of the end of Gillibrand’s presidential hopes. The only question I have for her: Why would she interfere in a decision made between a woman and her doctor?
If we want to end the opioid epidemic, we must work to address the root causes of abuse. That’s why @SenCoryGardner and I introduced legislation to limit opioid prescriptions for acute pain to 7 days. Because no one needs a month’s supply for a wisdom tooth extraction.
