Can parts of BBB be passed piecemeal? Since we can't get everything.
What are the risks that the bill may be chopped even more before passing?
Can executive order be used to bypass the Senate? What are the limits of that kind of action?
Hello Congressmember! My name is Andre and I'm a constituent, healthcare activist, and a member of many community organizations pushing for Medicare for All everywhere. Thank you for your leadership on HR.1976 Medicare for All and for fighting to expand Medicare both in terms of "what" and "who" is covered.Since so many of those provisions were unfortunately not in the version of Build Back Better that passed the House, do you support the implementation of Medicare for All statewide in Washington which would cover all of your constituent as well as the undocumented and homeless in our state - and would you come to a public meeting to meet with me and my community to discuss what we can do?
How do you suggest we fight for the changes? Build Back and for voting right? It seems like the Republicans have succeeded in stalemating us on this urgent agenda.

+1 for two track strategy! For example, we can fight to expand Medicare federally while working to pass statewide M4A in Washington.

Apologies - is the chat not for discussion? I was just trying to talk/discuss with other folks on the call. It was not intended as an additional question. I submitted my question in the Q&A section.
We have been asked to post our questions on Q &A I posted my question and I don't see any of the questions that you are asking on Q&A
OK thank you. Just wanted to be sure you got your question to the right place.
I only see my posting in Q&A, not other's
I like NATIONAL HEALTH PROGRAM as PNHP called it long ago ..
Dwight, only the hosts/panelists can see the questions in the Q&A
How many oil drilling leases has Biden approved—less than his predecessor in his first year?
what seems to be Manchins concerns is it the cost for the wealthy?
What is your estimate of our chances of preserving majority Democratic majority control of the House Sebaqte. Even EXPANDING that majority?
"A righteous fight" -- perhaps we should all pull together, all of our disparate organizations, and make the "righteous fight" a little louder. To best support Pramila :)
Could you discuss the status of the "Third Reconstruction:Fully Addressing Poverty and Low Wages from the Bottom Up" congressional resolution that you and Barbara Lee, are pushing forward?
I went to a webinar with Leah and Ezra at National Indivisible yesterday. They said they are not done fighting and will be working hard on getting BBB passed for the next few months, and not break it up (same reason Pramila just gave). Sign their pledge to Give No Ground which, among other things, will champion progressive candidates.
Through MoveOn and other organizations, I am researching local elections in many states with the aim of finding progressives to run for local offices.
Hi all, here is the op-Ed the Congresswoman referred to

I don't see the dots to save the chat?
Thank you for the links!!
Yes, Mike, but they aren't there for me.
I do not see the chat saving dot either, either a host setting or a zoom update... most likely a host setting
You'll have to click on the links, which will open them in your browser, and then save them for viewing later.
I will save the chat and send the link to all attendees.

Speaking of things being done about Senator Manchin, another MoveOn assisted project was to select comments from West Virginian Democrats telling Manchin about their needs and their unhappiness with his actions. These will be used in various political settings and in the media.

can each new congress vote to change the filibuster
The Washington State Legislature appointed a "Universal Health Care Work Group" and their ranked findings, released one year ago, follow: • Model A: state-governed and administered program for all state residents.o Estimated implementation year savings: $2.5 billiono Estimated annual steady state savings: $5.6 billion/year
The "press" is too close to monopolies owned and controlled by corporations who hire similarly minded reporters; ergo reporting not favorable to dems
