Friday 7/28 Call to Action

Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle! Today is a good day. I am going to sip my coffee and revel in it a bit.
Last night three Republican senators, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and John McCain joined the Democrats and voted no on the “skinny repeal" of the ACA, preventing it from passing and squashing Majority Leader McConnell’s attempt to undo President Obama’s legacy. Today is a very good day.…/senate-health-care-bill-vote-phot…
Watch speeches from McConnell and Senator Chuck Schumer. I agree with Sen. Schumer. It’s time for Senate to get back to regular order, work in committee and start COMPROMISING again to fix the ACA.…
I know a lot of attention is on Sen. McCain today for his impassioned speech last Tuesday and his bill ending vote last night. Please, let’s not forget the heroines in the room. Sens. Collins and Murkowski have remained strong despite tremendous pressure from their peers, the media and Trump.

The senators have been on the receiving end of some pretty vile and hateful remarks. Read more here:…/6b0b6078-72d7-11e7-9eac-d5…
Take some time today to thank these courageous ladies for listening to their constituents and staying strong. Send a post card, an email, a tweet.
While you are at it, let’s take a moment to thank our fantastic senators from Minnesota. Sens. Klobuchar and Franken have been steadfast in their efforts to protect the ACA.
John McCain received a standing ovation when he returned to Senate shortly after surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain and a brain cancer diagnosis. Let us not forget that there is another warrior on the Senate floor. Senator Mazie Hirono is recovering from a second surgery for stage 4 kidney cancer. She made a moving speech last night. Watch it here:…/senator-mazie-hirono-health…
Please send her a note of thanks for fighting for others and wish her well. Hawaii Office, 300 Ala Moana Blvd. Rm. 3-106, Honolulu, HI 96850
Today is a good day.
