Alrighty, it's the day after

I partied. You partied? Of course, you did. Did anyone see any pissy tweets from Trump today? If not, that would mean one of two things, either he doesn't give a fuck that he just had his bloated ass handed to him (most likely), or he's scheming on the golf course for revenge.

The two aren't necessarily mutually exclusive though.

Anyway, this shit ain't over. He clearly threatened to sabotage the ACA from within. Which, in any other case, is a (another) clear violation of his oath of office to uphold the law and the constitution. Two things need to happen, no, three.

First, he needs to be watched like a hawk. That's going to happen anyway.

Second, massive citizen response. Jam the phone lines, public protests and the rest. Basically, the protests can't end.

Third, he needs to be sued in Federal Court to petition an injunction be filed against policies that seek to undermine the ACA. The problem there though is that, under that scumbag, Price, the HHS won't do diddly.

Question: How can everyone get our point across? Through Congress?

Please discuss.

like IPhone, no need for maternity care, etc. in all competitive Representative and Senate races up to 2018. I would start a meme that Republicans view the little people as mere pawns. It doesn't matter who the Democratic nominee is at this point. Attack the incumbent. Talk about the sabotage. Use the opportunity to inform voters. Heck even buy time on Fox News if possible.
