How to call your reps when you have social anxiety (but the info is good for everyone, and there are scripts and contact pages and good links in here, so this is relevant even for people who have no issues with using the phone.)
* * * Here's what I wrote when I posted this elsewhere:
FWIW, I'm one of the people who will lose healthcare access if Trump repeals the ACA, as is my daughter.
Please speak up about the need for a national healthcare program, rather than a state-by-state patchwork of states that refused or accepted the ACA Medicaid expansion.
We're in a really bad situation here -- we can't afford to just move, we have secure housing in Texas, and there's no guarantee that another state would be better, if the ACA is repealed.
There are a lot of other issues that everyone should be contacting their representatives about (especially discrimination against LGBT people, people of color, and immigrants), and I hope you are doing so . . . but please give a moment of thought and a few words to the plight of disabled and/or chronically-ill people, as well.
Thanks so much <3
