My take is that she appears to be waiting for her marching orders. She's personally surprised by the extent of the program, but she's not centered enough in principle to take a stand on her own. So she's waiting for her democrat party congressional colleagues to come to consensus on what their reaction will be. Do they support the emperor, or do they push back?
The answer lies in public reaction. This issue is splitting the dems, which is good. The realignment of the political poles, from progressive-conservative to libertarian-authoritarian, which has been underway for decades, is speeding up. We don't win until the new alignment is obvious and our side wins.
