12:48 pm: Paul Ryan and the ACA
ETA: asakiyume called (202) 225-3031 and got through to the survey.

Paul Ryan's phone number, which may or may not lead to a survey about whether to repeal the ACA, is 202-225-0600. I just called twice. The first time, there was no survey, just an a chance to leave voicemail, so I hung up. After a minute to think, I called back; I don't think I pressed a different combination of buttons, but this time I got the survey, pressed 1, and then got voicemail. I said, "My name is Susan Ramirez. My husband worked for Hewlett-Packard for 28 years. He got laid off this month. One of our children is in college, one just graduated. They both have jobs, but they don't have full-time jobs or health benefits. Please don't take affordable health insurance away from people like us."

Good job. I'd say high fives, but everything seems so dire I don't have the bounce for high fives.

I called (202) 225-3031 and got the survey straightaway. I told him that thanks to the ACA I was able to keep our adult children on our insurance, without which they'd have had to go without.

Oh, noooooo! I'm sorry to hear about N's job situation, and the uncertainty that brings to everyone involved.

Damn that Lyin' King, he's going to screw up the country so badly.
