One year ago today, a wave of constituent pressure crashed in the Senate well -- saving health care for 23 million Americans and denying Trump a top legislative priority. 1/
We didn't build that wave overnight. It started little by little, when people like you showed up at town halls around the country to hold Republicans accountable for trying to repeal the ACA.… 2/
Republicans got scared off. They even pulled their first repeal vote in the House. But they didn’t quit -- and neither did we.… 3/
This was supposed to be easy for them! But a seven-year political promise suddenly had thousands and THOUSANDS of us punching holes in it. All. Over. The country. 4/
And when Republicans barely got #TrumpCare out of the House, we REALLY started putting in the work to stop it in the Senate. We picked up the phones. 5/
We held protests. Sit ins. Die ins. At one point, we held 172 events *on the same day.* Little by little, we turned the Senate calendar against them.… 6/
This wasn't *just* a Collins/Murk/McCain thing. Sen. Moran (R-KS) got an earful at a July 4 town hall, came back to DC and said he couldn't support the #TrumpCare bill on the table at the time. Capito and Portman eventually opposed other versions too, forcing more delays. 7/

There's another wave we're building that same way. In every corner of the country, we've already started to #DoTheWork to build the big #BlueWave that will crash this Nov. We're #100DaysOut from Election Day. The time is NOW to help us. Phone bank. Canvass. Recruit friends. 9/
This is what comes next for anyone who's called, gone to a town hall, or shown up for a march. A year+ ago, you didn't think you'd have your Senators' phone numbers saved in your phone, did you? 10/
This is it. We're #100DaysOut. If you haven't started already, doing the work to reclaim our power in Congress has to start now.… 11/
