Summary: ” Additionally, they’re recruiting, for more than 100 local demonstrations and protests in these states in the coming days prior to a vote is set to be called, including a rally on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning featuring Democratic senators, patients and families who would be affected by the legislation. “We totally recognized that Mitch McConnell shall be able to totally alter the rules again, and move around this.” But as Padilla put it, “This is an additional way of dramatizing that this has been all in secret.” Senate Democrats seemed finally to heed the call of activist organizations this week and began similarly to dramatize the issue, which has gone somewhat unnoticed in major national newspapers amid the constant drama at the White House. “Last week, the Senate was operating normally,” Ben Wikler, MoveOn.org’s Washington director, told The Daily Beast in a phone call Tuesday. McConnell said on Tuesday that Republicans would see a “discussion draft” of the legislation Thursday, and that it’ll move to the floor next week following a CBO analysis. Indivisible, an anti-Trump organization originally created by foregoing congressional staffers, has also joined the anti-AHCA fight, launching an online effort this week called “Our Amendments.” The process involves users submitting information, for an amendment, relying on the Republican process of reconciliation, which they’re using to have access to AHCA passed. Many Republican senators have said they haven’t seen a text of the bill, though the vote is expected by next week and there’s a distinct feasiblity the bill could might possibly pass without any public hearings, or debate. This week has been a sea change.” Wikler told The Daily Beast that the organization has been texting every member of MoveOn in states just where Republican senators might vote against the AHCA, urging them to make their voices heard. They aren’t only calling D.C. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to have access to the AHCA, also known as Trumpcare, passed prior to the July 4 recess and Senate Democrats finally seem to be feeling the urgency of progressive groups and activists, who’ve been issuing dire warnings, for weeks. “A one-night stand isn’t going to cut it when you’ve the lives of 20 million Americans at stake.” Zaheed told The Daily Beast that CREDO had made more than 30,00 calls to Congress over with the last few in number weeks, and more than 2,00 on Tuesday alone.”
