Calls To Kill TrumpCare (Again)
Normally, talking on the phone is not my thing. And I had enough of cold calling to last forever in my brief time in sales in the late 70s.
Add politics to the mix, and I have an even greater aversion.
But these are not normal times. And so, as a member of Indivisible Walla Walla, I nervously agreed to participate in today's phone bank calling peers in other states to encourage them to call their senators asking them to vote NO on the Graham-Cassidy Health Care Bill.
Using the website https://www.trumpcareten.org/ and hubdialer, the team made calls to registered voters in Alaska, Arizona and Colorado.
Despite a few hang ups and one "F-you," most of the voters I spoke with were friendly, and many had already contacted their senator. But the funny thing is, the more calls I made, the easier it became. That said, I don't see working in a call center anytime soon.
