[Ed. We’re keeping this on top. As O. says, they are not retreating they are regrouping. And we should too. Keep those phones ringing. Fresh(er) posts below. — TG]
The R’s have raised the white flag in their current effort to take away our health care. They have not given up, they will never give up. Look at their continuing generational efforts to overturn Social Security.
They are regrouping. They will come back with a new plan and another well funded effort to repeal the ACA again in less time than you think.
That’s lunchtime today. They aren’t waiting until after the recess, folks. They’re working on a new plan to repeal the ACA right now.
It’s only an advantage if you use it.
We haven’t won anything other than the opportunity to fight again on another day. They know and we need to know it, too.
However we do have the advantage. We always have, and we always will. We have the will of the people. We have the massive overwhelming numbers of people speaking out We have the ability to bring the R’s masters plans screeching to a halt at a moments notice, if we act as a group.
The proof of my assertion is the series of wins we have secured in the ongoing cold war with the R’s and their masters. It’s been six months, and we still have healthcare because we’ve fought for it and won each and every time.
We must fight for our “lives” with focus, determination and the ferocity of our devotion to our children and grandchildren today, and every day because the R’s and their masters will never give up.
A call to action:
We need to get on the phones to the R’s and hammer them with the clear messages:
- Keyword: “Hands Off My Obamacare!”
- Keyword: “Oppose repeal of the ACA.”
- Keyword: “See you at Town Hall.”
You must tell your R Senators, in no uncertain terms, that they are to oppose repeal of the ACA.
Please call your D Senators and offer them support. We are the backbone of the Democratic Party, they cannot stand for anything without us there supporting them every single minute.
Don’t wait until after work. Call them now. Call at lunch, call during your drive home and call after dinner. Send emails and walk into their offices.
Fight back. We must be as relentless in our resistance as the R’s are in their efforts to undermine the country we have inherited.
Have no doubt we are engaged in a fight for our “lives”.
Update: From C&L…
Got that? Make the calls, please. Don’t let up.
