(It may be silent for a significant stretch of time because phone lines are jammed but, please wait until a woman’s voice sounds with directions)
Action item today–this takes two minutes:
Paul Ryan is currently conducting a phone survey on who supports the ACA (Obamacare). You don’t have to speak directly to anyone, just call and after the message press a number to indicate your support.
Press 2 to hear the survey. You have to listen to a long message (1 minute) about how Speaker Ryan wants to dismantle the ACA, and how President Obama had the nerve to veto the bill. Be patient and wait for the survey.
Then press 1 for support of the ACA (Obamacare).
Even if you do not use the ACA, PLEASE take the time to call and express how important it is. It is an imperfect plan, but it is better than no plan. The flaws are fixable. We do not need to start from zero. And for many people, it is literally a matter of life or death that this insurance option is not repealed.
Bonus: You don’t have to talk to anyone, or call numerous times to get through. It’s an automated survey.
Every action, no matter how small, is important.
