This week’s podcast is dedicated to health care. Dan tells his personal story about being on the Affordable Care Act and how he uses the Amplify App to contact his representatives. You can get the details here: https://www.indivisiblechicago.com/amplify Dan connected with Senator Tammy Duckworth to ask her what she was going to do to stand up against the ACA repeal.
