This is the note I just sent my congressional representative;
Now that the republicans have tried and failed to repeal the ACA, it’s time for dems to step up and propose their own fixes to the actual problems the ACA has created. It would be a mistake to follow the Republicans tactic during the Obama years of simply sitting on our hands and letting the other side flounder. It would also be a mistake not to admit that there are problems created by the ACA that need to be fixed. Show the American people that dems are capable of governing better; come up with a plan that will fix the ACA, reduce premiums, close the gaps, and increase coverage. All the better if it can reduce costs to American taxpayers. Show us the dems have a plan other than just being the party of “no” for the next 4 years. It doesn’t need to have a chance of passing, it just needs to show people that dems are the party of ideas and leadership.
