By 6 pm ET on Friday, Lisa Murkowski’s Facebook post about her vote opposing the GOP health bill had elicited 110 “angry face” responses, but 2,323 “loves” and 8,211 “likes.”
Susan Collins hadn’t posted explicitly about her vote, but there were hundreds of comments about it on her most recent post, the overwhelming majority of which thank her for her courage and integrity.
John McCain’s recent post about his vote, had 1,333 “angry faces,” but 5,009 “loves” and 16,135 “likes.” Not even close.
These comments and responses shows how Americans feel about the health care issue, and these three senators are to be congratulated for having the courage to stand with the people instead of their party.
And of course all our Democratic senators are to be thanked for standing in our corner with us.
1. Express your heartfelt thanks to Murkowski, Collins, and McCain, by fax, email, or mail. You can also add to the Facebook comments and reactions.
2. If your senator is a Democrat, they too should be thanked for their vote.
