📍HEALTH CARE TUESDAY!
This is timely as we just had a number of brave and articulate Missoula Rises members participate in a Town Hall with Sen. Tester’s health care staff on effects of the ACA Repeal. Sen. Daines’ staff was invited, but declined to hear constitute the concerns. Again. Yesterday we engaged in dialogue, today we ACT.
🐊SWAMP THE CABINET
The full senate may vote on DEVOS for Education today. Keep calling Sen. Daines about the vote until it’s over. We are getting traction here, and there are reports that Daines may be wavering on DeVos.
We also oppose SESSIONS for Attorney General, PRICE for Health and Human Services, PRUITT for EPA, and MNUCHIN for Treasury.
📩NEW THIS WEEK — FAXING!
The Senate phone system is overloaded and some Senators are trying to avoid our calls. This means we KEEP CALLING, but we add some other things. We have multiple reports that faxes are effective. There are lots of free fax services! Try http://www.faxzero.com, or get a free trial at http://www.efax.com, or even use a real fax machine. Full instruction document and sample letters for download are linked. Be sure to edit with your name and your own additional comments.
ONE TOPIC per fax! Faxes are sorted by topic and we want them all to be counted.
NEW THIS WEEK — EMAIL via CONTACT ME forms!
Email to Senators/Representatives is via a Contact Me form. It’s a little tedious, but it works. Be sure to use a SEPARATE email for each issue. Emails are auto-sorted by topic and we want to make sure they count them all.
