For those of you like me who are Dems, Liberals or even moderates disappointed with the Republicans for the shutdown and who live in a Republican-controlled House district, it's time to get your Citizen Cape out of the coat closet.
Call your congresswo/man.
Email your congresswo/man.
Let me repeat that.
CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE.
EMAIL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE.
Don't be rude. Don't be bullying. Don't be a jerk. Don't be loud.
Just be firm, clear and disappointed. Let them know that you want your congressperson to accept the clean Senate CR as is and that you do not want your congressperson to participate in attempts to defund, block or hamper the ACA.
The person on the phone might disagree with you via talking points. Don't devolve into an argument. Just clearly state that you want your representative to go against the party and end the government shutdown by accepting the clean CR from the Senate or by dropping the requirement to change the ACA.
Let's get at it, fellow KOS'ers.
