It is nice to thank people for doing something good. Today’s call list consists of five senators who are not from my state, and who are also Republican. I called to express my support for their efforts to slow down the ACA Repeal, which will leave 24 million people without coverage, and which targets women and the poor.
Action: From Stacy Kent (FB)
For those worried about ACA coverage for themselves and their families: after hearing about the midnight repeal of the pre-existing conditions clause, I called Senator Warren’s office. The woman I spoke to said they are being flooded with calls, as are the offices of Speakers Ryan and McConnell.
Senator Warren’s staff member told me what would help the most would be to call the five Republican senators who have broken away from the GOP to demand a slow down of the repeal. Tell them how much you appreciate their efforts to stop the train wreck and share your story.
