(Lisa Hagen, The Hill) – Progressive groups gearing up for another recess of combative town halls for Republican lawmakers say they’re getting new energy from the newly released House GOP ObamaCare replacement plan.
Ahead of the April recess, groups like MoveOn.org and Indivisible are already protesting the legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
“The reality of the healthcare repeal bill will supercharge the resistance,” Ben Wikler, MoveOn’s Washington director, said in an interview. “This is really going to be a full-court press.”
“We’re starting to gear up to keep the members of Congress’ phones ringing off the hook continuously until they commit or follow through on their commitment to vote against this bill.”
When lawmakers were home for the holiday recess in late February, town halls in Republican members’ states and districts were swamped with rowdy protesters who were particularly concerned about changes to ObamaCare.
