Second, they should focus on the senators who did the right thing in opposing an atrocious bill because it hurt their states. Respectful but consistent pressure needs to be applied to remind them that whatever goodies the White House and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., dole out, a bill that reduces subsidies to those in the exchanges (especially older and poorer Americans) and slashes Medicaid will never be acceptable. Voters should be urged to call, write and meet with the senators to express gratitude and to make clear the voters expect them to stick to their guns. Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Rob Portman, R-Ohio, Dean Heller, R-Nev., Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., have acted responsibly when presented with the facts, namely the data on how the bill would affect their states. This is a mini-battle in those five states (and perhaps Louisiana as well) where figures and situations applicable to each lawmaker's state remain uppermost in their minds. The unpopularity of Trump in their states should also be emphasized.
