Call your Senators

Pure anecdata, and I just said this on Twitter but sometimes I like to say things in more than one place: I just called both of my Senators, one a Democrat and one a Republican, and told their staffers that I needed them both to vote against the Senate healthcare bill.  Also said to the Democrat’s staffer (who sounded exhausted) that I expected him to do literally everything in his power to oppose it.

I got through to the Democrat’s office on the first try.  It took four to get through to the Republican’s office.  And damn near every single response to this tweet by Todd Young is anti-AHCA.  It’s amazing:

There’s a lot of weasel words in there, but I’m choosing to take a bit of solace in the fact that it’s not a full-throated endorsement of the bill.

This bill will hurt literally every person living in this country.  Every single one.  Get on the phones, folks, and make your voices heard.  The DC Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121, but I find more luck getting ahold of actual people by calling the local offices.

  1. And dammit – get out there and vote these numbnuts out of office as soon as you can!! If I could, I would email, phone, vote, etc., but I live in the land of socialized medicine and cute Prime Ministers…

  2. Todd Young’s statement there does NOT indicate that he’s behind the ACA. He says it’s failed Hoosiers with skyrocketing prices; and is collapsing. The only reason it’s collapsing is because Drumpf is casting so much doubt on what’s going to happen.
