I called my senators about the ACA. Roy Blunt's staffer was audibly pissed. I am a terrible person to be just a bit gleeful about pissing off someone to the point of nonprofessional behavior, I think, but dang. I'm also hopeful they are getting many, many calls on this, even if it is post-deadline. Repealment of something so complex has several phases. (Senator McCaskill's answering machine did not display affect when I called to thank her for her awesome support of... well, everything good and right.)

It would be fab if I could get their "OMG I SHIP YOU GUYS SO HARD" notifications via e-mail for people.
