5. With any political strategy it's timing

and they may have the timing now given the recess, to put a marketing campaign together for their constituents on a few of these ideas. One of the suggestions, which I think is good and leads to what many of us have been asking for, is this (from the OP link) -


“When I go back to the district, they want to know what you’re going to do,” said Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.).

“Resisting is no longer just enough, they want to see what your plan is.”


On Thursday, Larson banded with Reps. Joe Courtney (D-Conn.) and Brian Higgins (D-N.Y.) to introduce legislation that would allow people aged 50-64 to buy-in to Medicare –– a proposal designed to help a group that’s been hit disproportionately by rising out-of-pocket costs under the ACA.


This suggestion targets a group of the now more reliable voters, i.e., younger boomers and the older X-gens, and could be the stepping stone for "Medicare for All". But they need a clever and intensive ad campaign (not just "web ads" ) to put the suggestions out there. Partner with orgs like AARP to push for it.
