Activism: Saving the ACA: Saving Ourselves

(We’re keeping this on top, fresh(Er?) posts below! — TG)

 

From dKos…

What McConnell is doing on Trumpcare is not normal, neither should be the Democrats’ response

Veteran health reporter Julie Rovner is blown away by the news that Senate Republicans will not publicly release their version of Trumpcare prior to its reaching the Senate floor, which is supposed to happen as early as next week. “I have covered every major health bill in Congress since 1986,” Rovner tweeted. “Have NEVER seen anything like this.”

batgirltobatphone_zps24956fc4A call to action: Hit the phones please

I want to ask everyone to make multiple phone calls the their D and R Senators every day this week, multiple time a day if you can swing it..

Remember Phone Calls Work!

Support the D’s scare influence the R’s, because there’s nothing like the threat of loosing your job to harsh the buzz of your power trip.

Keyword: Oppose the AHCA
Keyword: Hands Off My Obamacare
Keyword: Looking forward to seeing you at Town Hall.

Leave VM’s with your morning coffee, make another call while creeping through rush hour traffic.

    So I check out Julie Rovner’s tweet about Mitch McTurtle doing the bill in the dark in secret and her replies start with a herd of trumpeter turtles going ‘oh, yeah? We didn’t get the read the ACA before it got passed, either. Snrk, snrk, snrk… Gotcha, snowflake!’
    There are some pointing out that this line is total bs, but our dog was barking at the rain last night, and he is smarter than these bozos. No amount of pointing out they are spouting bs will impress them.

      Facts play no part in their preferred reality.

      First of all, there was no lack of transparency in the drafting and passing of the Affordable Care Act. In fact, the consideration of the Affordable Care Act was one of the most open and transparent in our nation’s history. Here are some of the facts:
      o House committees held 79 bipartisan hearings and markups on the health reform bill.

      o House Members spent nearly 100 hours in hearings, heard from 181 witnesses from both sides of the aisle, considered 239 amendments (both Democratic and Republican), and accepted 121 amendments.

      o The Senate HELP Committee held 47 bipartisan hearings, roundtables, and walkthroughs. They also considered nearly 300 amendments and accepted more than 160 Republican amendments.

      o The Senate Finance Committee held more than 53 hearings on health reform. They spent 8 days marking up the legislation – the longest markup in 22 years – during which they considered 135 amendments.

      o The Senate spent 25 consecutive days in session on health reform, the second longest consecutive session in history.
