Hi everyone! Welcome to Wednesday!
OMG, what an election! Warnock is victorious and most probably Ossoff, as well! From Indivisible – “This victory is because of years and years of hard, often unappreciated work, from Stacey Abrams, John Lewis, our partner organizations, Black and brown voters, local Indivisible leaders, and tens of thousands of everyday people who took time to pick up a phone, knock on a door or send a postcard. Together, that broad coalition helped voters overcome historic voter suppression and moved Georgia — and the nation — towards a brighter tomorrow.”
But there’s no lounging around now. As Heather Cox Richardson said in her Jan. 5th post: “…America is in a precarious spot. But Americans have finally woken up. Democracy is not a spectator sport, and people are now speaking up, demanding that our leaders listen to us, and insisting that officials as well as ordinary Americans answer to the law. Let’s approach the future with the clear eyes it demands. And now, let’s get to work.”(https://www.facebook.com/heathercoxrichardson/posts/2559205820890135)

MORE DETAIL: (https://medicare4all.org/about/) With the start of a new congressional session, M4A advocates expect the new and improved version of the House Medicare for All bill, Medicare for All Act of 2019 (Res 1384) to be brought to vote in February. A measure of support can be the number of original co-sponsors. Right now, there are 118 co-sponsors and our congressional representative, Julia Brownley, is missing from that list!
