MESSAGE FROM INDIVISIBLE NATIONAL – Because of your sustained, organized pressure, members of Congress (MoCs) are on notice that they have to think about their constituents. MoC’s recognize your power, and they fear it. And how they talk, how they act, all flows from that.
Sen. Susan Collins was a rock from almost the beginning, because Maine groups traveled hours across the state to visit every one of her offices, and kept up the positive reinforcement after she said yes.
In Alaska, the groups worked with partners and turned out from Wasilla to Anchorage, again and again, and gave Sen. Lisa Murkowski the political cover she needed.
And Arizona showed up in 110 degree weather; they turned out 100 people on 24 hours notice to Sen. John McCain’s office in Tucson yesterday, asking him to be a hero.
But this wasn’t only about those senators. This was a win from every district, made up of the work of every group. You were the power that gave Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats the spine to withhold consent. And you were the ones who framed the entire conversation again and again, making each successive version of the bill politically toxic. You were the ones who made it so that every single member of the Senate had to reckon with real pressure, many of them for the first time. You were the ones who made this thing so toxic that McCain saw the hero opportunity. That pressure, that framing, that relentless force from every corner of the country was what made this win possible. This took all of us.
There are more fights to come. Zombie TrumpCare could be dead or could be back in the not-too-distant future. But this was a huge win. And every single one of you own it.
