This week a lot of people called U.S. senators to oppose the Wealthcare Act. I did also, although Sen. Bill Nelson had already announced he would oppose it – as did all Democrats – and Sen. Marco Rubio had already announced he would support it. Neither my calls nor the probably hundreds or thousands of others from Florida changed Sen. Rubio’s vote, but enough people from enough states made enough calls to enough senators to block the bill. Activism can work!
