Weigel has a good summary of how grassroots resistance stopped TrumpCare. It wasn’t a strategy coming out of Congressional Democrats. It was everyday people, getting in the streets, protesting, disrupting town hall meetings, holding mock town hall meetings for congresscritters who wouldn’t do them, and overwhelming phone lines with calls opposing the bill that made this happen. And that’s what will do more than anything to continue defeating Trump and Ryan. We need more protest. We need more campaigns. We need more political activism. The success going forward for the left will be the ability to build on this victory through using the same tactics on other bills, starting with the budget. Let’s make it happen.
