I just saw this from Angus King: "Spent some time this AM talking to constituents about healthcare. I'm a no on Graham-Cassidy. #mepolitics pic.twitter.com/GdMwzmI…"

Continue contacting Senator Collins' office! I just spoke with a very nice woman in the Portland office and she was well-informed but very noncommittal about how Senator Collins plans to vote. 😔

Anyone in the Portland area want to carpool to the State Committee meeting in Farmington on the 17th? If you are close to Portland even if not in it I'm happy to meet you or pick you up. (My only requirement is no smoking.) ...

Yes, I'll carpool with you.

Is anyone else interested in carpooling with us?

PSA about ACA if you must purchase on the open marketplace.
Trump is trying his hardest to make ACA fail, even at the expense of the people who need it the most.
If you are required to purchase health insurance through the individual market,(in other words, you're not covered by your employer, your spouse's employer, Medicare or Medicaid), please read this, and share with people who may need to know it.
Since the ACA went into effect, the open enrollment period for signing up with a health care insurance provider started on Nov 1 and ended on Jan 31 of the following year -- a 3-month period. This year, the open enrollment period starts Nov 1 and ends Dec 15.
The Trump administration has reduced the open enrollment period by 50%. The administration has also cut the ACA advertising budget by 90%, meaning the only way people are likely to hear about the shorter enrollment window is by word of mouth.
"Sharing" it will only let those who are mutually on both of our friend's list see this. You need to "copy and paste" in order for everyone on your friend's list to see this. The more people who see it, the better. #SpreadTheWord
Thank you.

Important !!!

Fight For DACA RallySeptember 8, 2017, 6:00pmPortland City Hall (Maine)On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced its decision to rescind DACA. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was implemented by the Obama administration in June 2012. DACA allows certain undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit. Six months from now, unless Congress acts, new DACA recipients will start to lose their ability to work legally and will risk immediate deportation every day. 800,000 people who are American in every way except on paper will lose their ability to live in the only country they know. These are people who are currently working, pursuing an education, and serving in the military. They are our friends and neighbors. They contribute to our communities and world.

We cannot stay silent. We must stand with our sisters and brothers. We are calling on Maine's Congressional Delegation to push for passage of the DREAM Act to ensure that the Dreamers can continue living here as productive contributors in the only country they've known.

The rally is cosponsored by the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project (ILAP), Mainers for Accountable Leadership, Maine People's Alliance, Maine Women's Lobby, and Progressive Portland.

Please bring signs, and if anyone is interested in speaking, let me know before the event.
