One last AHCA reaction twitter thread, this one from Sydette (@Blackamazon)
Hat tip to [personal profile] owlmoose who has a post on other goings on here.

Even though this was gutting and these folks are Satan's minions in Jesus' clothes...

The Vote was 213 to 217. That was 4 folks. FOUR out of 430. Your advocating matters you're calling matters

These assholes came on in January and swore that they were gonna cakewalk through the year after a 100 day stroll

Even when some of these legislators have been slippery and indecisive ? You have knocked them back EVERY single time

It's only 105 days and Paul Ryan had to BEG on bended knee , and Cheeto already wants to go home

They went from power strutting to banking on four folks . That's facts

Yes this just harm reduction but harm reduction MATTERS . Live matters and fighting for it is LONG TERM

and people on the RIGHT and the LEFT thought folks would burn out by now. Be complacent

and now ? They gotta sell the store to get four.

We don't gotta compromise or strategize SHIT at this point. IT's a BRAWL . There are less of them than there are of us

Love is patient love is kind and in the words of @MoneyLynch ? "Sometimes you just gotta run through a motherfuckers face"

if they wanna sing to our deaths with beer ? They better be prepared for the tune-up EVERY TIME WE BLITZ? ALL NIGHT

Defeat is not the failure . Acceptance is

We don't do this "for the Dems" because i want to drop kick some of them into the Potomac. It's for US.

Take care of you . Breathe . Cry . Fuck. Sleep . Meditate . Blaze . Pray Dance it out . Step in and step out

But don't you dare feel like you didn't do anything or what you're doing doesn't matter. It does

It worked. Of the 4 reps from Nevada, only 1 voted yes and he's not my rep (go figure he's the Republican rep and the other 3 are Democrats).

I live in NV and the GOP rep is my rep. He was a no until this morning. I'm furious.

Titus is mine.

He was a no previously? Urgh. The vote was so close!

Yeah, I think Pence harangued him last night. It's terrible.

Nail him to the wall over it. He lied, and he betrayed his constituents. Make sure he knows YOU know it.

The second I found out, I called district/DC offices and demanded someone take down my thoughts. I ended up hanging up on the staffer in the district office because they kept trying to say I needed to look online for his statement instead of writing down my message. And then I cried for a while in the ear of the DC staffer (I hate being an angry crier, but whatever works, I guess).

I'm hoping to follow up tomorrow or Monday to see if he has a town hall meeting during the recess, and writing a letter to my local paper if not. (I say "hoping" because I have pretty terrible social/phone anxiety; I depend on Resistbot a lot, but this is something I need to talk to people about. Maybe I can get someone else to call if I can't manage, though.)

You're doing awesome! I just started using resistbot because I have a cold and when I get sick, I lose my voice. (That didn't stop me today from actually calling Heller's office while it was open to voice my opposition towards the bill now in the senate. My fury carried me through, hoarse voice and all).
