    Yes, it is going to be long and bumpy. We need to hang tough. I have the feeling it is going to be like voter registration ...
    I wonder if canvassing for Democrats shouldn't ask people if they have signed up (in case they don't have health insurance). It really wouldn't hurt to ask. There are plenty of states with important elections in November: NJ, VA, ... etc.
    A push is really needed.

      are referring in people without insurance. I would hope that social service agencies are too. I'll be going to a community flu shot clinic next week (since the insurance doesn't kick in yet), and will be interested to see if they have literature out.

      If I were doing it, I would send navigators out into the community, with laptops, to community centers, food pantries, send flyers home with school kids, etc. etc. I assume they may do more of this once the website issues are resolved.

        to advise customers.  CVS, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid by my personal observation.

        We are the principled ones, remember? We don't get to use the black hats' tricks even when it would benefit us. Political Compass: -6.88, -6.41
