Trump is threatening them if they vote against the bill, if you’re their constituent (or know someone who lives in their states), call them and make sure these reps know they answer to the American people and not to Trump.

Vote will take place on Thursday, March 23 - tell them to vote no on AHCA aka Trumpcare.

Trump will give up on repealing Obamacare if the House vote fails

  • Trump will reportedly give up on health care reform if the Republican health care bill does not pass on Friday, according to Politico.
  • “If the president doesn’t get a vote to repeal and replace Obamacare, he will move on to other priorities,” White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said according to NBC News. Read more (3/23/17 10:11 PM)

What changes will Republicans make to the AHCA? Here’s what’s proposed.

  • Lacking the votes within their own party to pass the American Health Care Act, Republican leaders offered a series of proposed changes to woo House conservatives to support the bill.
  • Repealing essential health benefits guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act. Those benefits include emergency services, hospitalization, mental heath care, prescription drugs and maternity care, among others. 
  • Delaying repeal of ACA tax. The ACA levied a .9% tax on high-income Americans — those making more than $200,000 a year — to help pay for Medicare, according to the New York Times. The earlier version of the AHCA repealed this tax.
  • Adding money for states to deal with health care costs. Another change would provide states $15 billion to address health care needs — including mental health and substance abuse treatment. Read more (3/24/17 8:23 AM)

CBO report on the latest version of the GOP’s health care bill is even worse than before

  • A new report released Thursday from the Congressional Budget Office could put Friday morning’s already shaky vote in even more jeopardy.
  • The report showed that not only will the same number of people lose their coverage under the revised bill, but it actually lowers the amount of government cost savings. Read more (3/23/17 7 PM)

48.6%... prompt.. Alec tries to reach Magnus whole day but just can't get him and at the end of the day when a very tired and hurt magnus comes home alec takes care of him who is barely conscious ... love ur blog :)

thank you so much vaishali! keep voting for malec

pressing the home button to his phone, alec raised it again, glancing at the time and the lack of notifications for the thousandth time that night. his wallpaper, a beautiful picture of magnus laughing from a party a couple of weeks ago stared back at him, blank and empty and the time taunted him. it was late, evening almost turned into morning at this point and his eyebrows felt heavy with the way they were pulled together.

but the worst part was the emptiness, no notifications, no texts or calls, nothing at all staring back at him as he worried his lip and bounced his leg, listening as the world quieted down outside. he knew he shouldn’t have been this worried, magnus could take care of himself. but after hours, after nothing, after silence and stillness, and the time when magnus had supposed to arrive home having long since passed, alec’s chest felt horribly tight and uncomfortable, his heart pounding against his ribcage.

and then suddenly he heard it, the sound of a portal shuddering open making him jump in the quiet of the room.

he was down the hall in a flash, brushing past the pillars only to see magnus leaning against the wall, blood dripping from his fingertips as he braced himself, his chest heaving. in that moment, he was pretty sure his heart stopped. he hit him with full force, grabbing at his face and his chest, his breathing gone shaky as he inspected him, terrified. “shit… shit please tell me this isn’t your blood. magnus please look at me. are you— are you okay?”

“hey. hey… alec hey.” magnus breathed, grabbing at him and holding onto his forearms as he leaned on him, staring at him with those dark brown eyes. a slow smile pulled on his face, even though he looked exhausted and ready to pass out. “i’m fine. it’s not my blood… but it is getting everywhere.”

alec breathed out a heavy sigh of relief, laced with desperate laughter, his fingertips sinking into the hair at the back of magnus’s head as he pressed their foreheads together. “you worried me sick.”

  • Me: I want Supercorp to win the poll, but I love and ship Clexa, Swanqueen, and Shoot so much, so I really wouldn't mind if they won.
  • Inner me: Destroy them.

By a largely party-line vote Tuesday, the Senate approved a bill that repeals Obama-era hunting restrictions on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. The House already voted last month to abolish those restrictions — which were instituted by the Fish and Wildlife Service in 2016 to protect predator species from hunters — and so the bill now heads to the desk of President Trump, who is widely expected to sign it.

The FWS rule facing repeal explicitly prohibited many kinds of “predator control” on the 16 federally owned refuges in Alaska. That prohibition included a ban on the aerial hunting, live trapping or baiting of predators such as bears and wolves — as well as on killing those predators while near their dens or their cubs.

anyway i don’t know what y’all’s motivations in voting in these things are but if it’s just your love for malec then i don’t really think that’s enough tbh so i propose what seems to me to be the best fuel and driving force and that’s anger. pls get angry that magnus being a bisexual asian man is a too unique and too important character to be overlooked like this (again), or get angry that poc in shadowhunters fandom have to watch malec, an interracial couple, losing to a white ship for the second year in a row, or be angry because ev//ak, as wonderful as they are, being a new white couple, never should have become so much more popular then the already well-known and interracial malec in such a short time, because none of this is a coincidence and it’s not fair and we shouldn’t just be satisfied with whatever ship wining just because they are both m/m and we still have hours before the poll closes and we can win this so pls

just keep voting for malec

The calls, emails, and protests are working!

The jackass that proposed that “sell off 3.3 million acres of public land” bill is withdrawing it!

  • Also, at UC Berkley protesters forced them to cancel a previously scheduled speech by that Milo nazi
  • The Dems are finally starting to show some backbone. They successfully delayed 3 confirmations by a day by boycotting the hearing entirely. The Republicans had to change the parliamentary rules so they could approve the nominees without them being present, but it’s a sign that Dems just might finally be listening to their constituents
  • As of this moment, all Dems are voting against Betsy Devos AND two GOP Senators. Only one more GOP Senate vote is needed, and Betsy DeVos will not be confirmed!
  • Jeff Sessions confirmation is delayed again–because GOP thinks they might need him on the Senate to vote for DeVos
  • Trump walked back a planned executive order on LGBTQ rights, announcing that Obama’s protections for federal LGBTQ employees would stand (for now) after massive pushback
  • Trump also walked back a portion of his Muslim ban. Green card holders are now exempt. And we all already know about the states, cities, corporations, and individuals now suing him over it.
  • Harley Davidson cancelled a scheduled visit from him because they didn’t want the bad press.
  • The House Intelligence Committee has now launched its own investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russia
  • Representatives are actually talking about the volume of calls, emails, and protests at their offices. We are actually getting through to them!
  • Trump continues to be embroiled in scandal. It’s coming out that the recent raid in Yemen that got an 8 year old girl and Navy SEAL killed was based on faulty intelligence that Obama originally vetoed. Trump went with it (and there’s evidence that Bannon and his son-in-law were there for the decision) and people are dead. In fact, it’s coming out that even more women and children were killed during the raid than originally reported.
  • And all across the country, people are in the streets every single day. I know I am. We need to keep the pressure on our Representatives. Your calls, voice mails, and letters are making a difference. Your LOUD and VISIBLE dissent are making a difference.

But don’t forget the most important part! Register to vote NOW before the GOP starts rolling out new laws to make it more onerus. And don’t stop with you. Make sure all your friends and family are registered. These bureaucratic things take time so DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE ELECTION TO REGISTER TO VOTE. And when November 2018 comes around DO NOT VOTE ALONE. Take at least 5 people to the polls with you. Order your mail-in ballots early, and make a night of filling them out together. Don’t just pick your friends/family who already vote. Talk to the ones who never want to talk about politics. We’ve got to get as many people as possible!

anonymous asked:

I'd /love/ to read something about Black Butler written by you. You have that "elegant" style that would suit Sebastian and Ciel so well. Btw, I know these are troubled times for you so I just want to send all my love and my appreciation for your work. You are so strong and amazing (and have great taste in anime as well). I look up to you and I hope things will get better. *hugs* <3

I’d love to write one, but there’s a few things that put me off which is firstly that I’m very intimidated by the characters, lol. But mostly I’m intimidated by the amount of worldbuilding I’d need if I wanted to set it in Victorian England (and…I do) vs. a contemporary AU.

I sort of, it’s one of the those things where I don’t even let myself think about it much because if I did, I’d probably end up with some 250k epic and years of research and it’s like ‘no Pia. No. No don’t do that.’ :D

But yeah, for some reason I find Ciel and Sebastian very intimidating characters to write. And the fandom has a lot of fanfic that I already love which helps a great deal. If only we had more time / hours in the day, right?? I’ve been in that fandom for a long time, long long time, and when I first joined it there were almost zero fics for the pairing. So that was when I was thinking most about writing fanfiction for it. But in that time since, more manga has been released, another season has come out etc. and the amount of really good quality fanfiction has increased.

So I feel less compelled to do it not because I can just enjoy the works of authors who have already struggled through the research god bless every one of them :D

<3<3 And thank you so much for your kind words! You’re awesome, anon
