Republicans are still plotting to repeal ACA - except they know their bill will be so horrendously unpopular (apparently, phasing out Medicaid expansions, deregulating insurance even for employer-provided plans, raising premiums) that they are working in secret to design it, with a plan to essentially only reveal it 2 hours before the vote, without any hearings or time for public commentary. They aim to get it passed by the end of June.

It's truly a nightmare. Everyone needs to call their Senator - Democratic or Republican. [personal profile] morgandawn has been posting calling scripts and other details here (for people with Dem senators specifically) and here (for everyone).

I know calls can be difficult for some people, so if you're only capable of emailing that's better than silence, but in general, people with knowledge of Congress say that the impact of emails is limited and calls have a much much better chance of getting politicians' attention. So calls are preferred if you can manage them at all.

I called Tuesday. I will see if I am well enough to call Friday, but I can't guarantee it. :]
