Here's the deal for today: using the tools in the upper left-hand corner of this page, you can call your Reps and Senators and tell them to preserve the Affordable Care Act and reject any attempt to zero out federal funding for Planned Parenthood. I don't have a handy email tool to help you with these tasks, but I think phone calls are more effective anyway, especially at a time like this -- clogging up their phone lines makes the news, as it did during that attempt to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics. Of course, we want everyone else to make their calls, too, so make your call as short as possible. You can tell your Reps and Senators that you oppose Affordable Care Act repeal because (as Tony Nitti explained in Forbes not too long ago) it will raise taxes on middle-class families while handing out more unearned tax cuts to the rich. And you can tell your Reps and Senators that you oppose attempts to cut Planned Parenthood funding because it'll hurt working families who need pre-natal care and cancer screenings. You can no doubt think of other things to say (that Obamacare repeal would throw nearly 30 million people off their health care, that the whole Planned Parenthood controversy was ginned up by bogus videos made by right-wing activists), but I'd keep it to one simple sentence for each item. Remember that you don't have to make some grand argument to your Reps or Senators -- whoever answers the phone has no job except to take down what you say and relay it to their bosses. And don't worry about these staffers arguing with you, either, because that's not their job.
A word about the Affordable Care Act. I've never been very supportive of it -- it's put nearly 30 million more Americans into the private, corporate health insurance system, which isn't as good as what our government offers (and remember that even Trump supporters seem to agree!). The Affordable Care Act hasn't made health insurance cheaper, either -- it's merely slowed the rate at which prices go up, which isn't tremendously impressive. Medicare-for-All, single-payer health care would actually cut health care costs and provide more care to all Americans, but of course we can't have nice things in America, because it would hurt health insurance CEO's fee-fees. (Note well that I qualified "CEO" with "health insurance": I expect that if we were to ask the rest of the economy's CEOs if they'd like to pay noticeably less they're paying now in health insurance -- which is what single-payer would allow them to do! -- a lot of them would say yes.) But I know ACA repeal will hit a lot of good Americans very, very hard in the pocketbook, and Republicans are being silent on how they'll replace it -- a matter they've had seven years to contemplate! -- and they're being silent for very good reason: when they do advertise their alternatives, people hate them. And frankly, handing out another $350 billion over 10 years in tax cuts for the rich while raising taxes for working families by getting rid of their tax credits makes me sick to my stomach. I'll never give up the battle for a Medicare-for-All, single-payer system, but I'll be damned if our government gives yet more welfare handouts to the undeserving rich while sticking it to working families. And that's what Obamacare repeal will do.
One more thing. If you can't get through to your Senators -- at least one of mine had a full mailbox yesterday when I called about Jeff Sessions -- then call one of their local, in-state offices. You can get a phone number for a local number from your Senators' websites. Your Senator's website will be lastname.senate.gov (Sen. Warren, for example, would be warren.senate.gov). Good luck and God bless.
