The senate is trying to pass the ACHA without input from anybody– they’re hoping to put a vote up right after the CBO comes out without allowing anybody to understand what is in the bill. It looks like they might have enough votes to do it. Why? Because they think they can. They think we’re all distracted by this whole Comey thing. They want to do the same thing that the House did and pass it without giving anyone time to understand it first. Why? Because it is a bad bill that will hurt Americans. Even if you’re in a state where you know your legislators aren’t listening to you, it is important to keep contacting them to let them know that you’re paying attention. Because the more they think they can get away with, the more that they’re going to do. I’ll try to finish up one of the posts on more ways to activism that’s sitting in drafts, because it’s important to become active again. Until then, read this excellent twitter thread with suggestions and links and discussion of the ACHA and explanations of what the GOP senate is trying to do. I know it has been hard and tiring and demoralizing, believe me, I know, but it’s still incredibly important. Let’s give it another push. Because every little bit that we do literally saves lives down the line.
