As Vote On GOP Health Care Bill Nears, Find Out Where Members Of Congress Stand
NPR and dozens of member stations are searching for public statements on Twitter and Facebook, on lawmakers' websites and in interviews with public media or other news organizations.
OK LISTEN UP EVERYONE THIS IS REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT.
Like I know it’s late and this is happening tomorrow, but like WHEN YOU WAKE UP TOMORROW CLICK ON THAT LITTLE FUN LINK ABOVE. It’s going to tell you how each of your Senator’s and Representatives feel about the FULL OF COMPLETE AND UTTER SHIT “Health Care” Bill that is being voted on TOMORROW (MARCH 23rd) in the House.
You are going to look and if your Representative has not commented or is in favor you are going to PICK UP YOUR PHONE and call their office and say the following:
“Hello, my name is ____ and I am a constituent from _____ and I would like to know how the Representative plans on voting today for the health care bill.”
Their aid that picked up the phone is going to either say:
“They are opposed.” To which you reply: “THANK THE FUCKING LORD” (jk lolz plz don’t say this - try “Well then, I just wanted to thank them for representing their constituents with their vote as I too oppose this bill.”)
Or they will say:
“They in support of the bill.” (*At this point it’s best not to loose your cool even though you will want to) Instead you are going to say: “While I appreciate the work they are doing in DC on behalf of all of us from ______, I do want to emphasize that I DO NOT support the passing of this bill. [insert personal story here about how you work in the medical field, study in the medical field, or are somehow positively affected by Obamacare]. I would really appreciate it if you could pass this message on to the Representative. Thank you for taking the time to answer phones today.”
THEN YOU CAN HANG UP AND GO ABOUT YOUR DAY OR IF YOU HAVE TIME YOU CAN DO THE SAME FOR YOUR SENATORS BECAUSE IF THIS PASSES TOMORROW GUESS WHO IS UP NEXT?!
Guys, ugh, I just….we CAN NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. PLEASE. OMG.
