Tumblr CrossPost: How Democrats can defeat the repeal of Obamacare

How Democrats can defeat the repeal of Obamacare:

“And it worked. TV news and newspaper headlines all attributed the reversal to Donald Trump’s supposedly heroic tweet on the subject, which didn’t even oppose the move, just its timing. But in reality, as reporters working Capitol Hill reported, what really turned the tide was the public backlash, namely the flood of angry phone calls and emails to Republicans’ offices complaining about the move to gut the OCE. Republican members got spooked enough to quickly reverse themselves. “

Please if you live in a Republican district (house or senate), please call your rep. Even as few as 20 phone calls a day can make a difference.

TBH we most likely won't be able to defeat the "repeal" but we may force them to have a plan ti place before they take away health care for millions of Americas.

If you do call, tweet or FB your friends and tell them: "Would you kick a friend out of a moving car and tell them: BRB?"

No repeal without replace.
