We did it! Thank you! 

In a stunning setback for Republicans, the American Health Care Act was withdrawn on Friday, leaving the House and its leadership in disarray. Paul Ryan said, "Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains. And well, we're feeling those growing pains today." 

Our grassroots activism is a part of the pain that Congress is feeling! We will continue to rally and resist and demand accountability from our representatives. Our efforts are working and worthy of our time and energy! Keep it going!
 
This Week’s Successes
More on withdrawal of the health care bill in this New York Times Article.
 
Tuesday's "Die In" at Issa's Vista office was a very effective protest. It received broad news coverage, including this article by The Huffington Post: Health Care Protesters Hold 'Die-In' Outside Darrell Issa's Office. Demonstrators held up tombstone-shaped signs with slogans like "GOP compassion killed me." See the article here.
 
Upcoming Events
Celebrate and Demonstrate! - March 28 Rally
We will continue our Tuesday rallies at Issa's Vista Office. We want him to know that we still intend to hold him accountable for his words and actions.

We will be asking Congressman Issa to take a leadership role in asking for a special prosecutor and an independent investigation into Trump's ties with Russia. 

Come join us and meet other Indivisible 49 members as we share action plans!  Rally info. 

 
Legislative Update
Well, the House is so confounded that the schedule for this next week is not even up yet. Good work y’all!

As reported yesterday by the media, TrumpCare or RyanCare, whichever you want to call it, was withdrawn from the House. It does not appear that it will be revived. All signs point to the importance of turning our focus now to the vast array of terrible bills going through Congress right now; the GOP is about to change direction and as of yet, we do not know which way it will be. Our guess is abortion/women’s health; dismantling public education or allowing churches to make political statements.

Issa has continued to be slippery and despicable saying this week that he was doubling-down on “the millions of Californians” who are “depending on us to replace Obamacare once and for all” and then being non-committal about which way he was going to vote up until the last minute.

We will continue to provide Legislative Updates as soon as we have more information to share. 
Keep up the great work everyone!
