If GOP representatives and senators refuse to help their constituents with questions about how to navigate the ACA this fall, as they are threatening to do during their August recess, how can Democrats help? I know Obama is planning a big push on the ACA this late summer and fall. Does it include state and local Democratic committees setting up informational town hall meetings or health care fairs, or something similar, even if the local representative is a(n objectionable) Republican and objects? I mean, this shouldn't be political or along party lines, but if a district is being ill served because of politics? How can we help those people?
Maybe that's naive, or the local committees don't have the resources, but I think that would be a practical and useful community outreach effort. Speeches are nice, but people need to know what to do practically.
I don't know, maybe it's already in the works. I think it's a decent idea. Even it it didn't garner one bit of goodwill or vote, it would still be the right thing to do for people.
