In this episode Kelly speaks with Peter Morley (@morethanmySLE) and Red T Raccoon (@redtraccoon), two grass-roots political activists, about their recent trip to DC to talk to the offices of 20 different Senators and Representatives about their signature issues, healthcare and veterans issues. Peter and Red discuss what they learned in their meetings, the future of the ACA, the importance of constituents regularly calling their congresspeople, the difficulty of making these trips while suffering from chronic illnesses, and the positive impact of Twitter in politics.
