Speaker Paul Ryan’s ACA/Obamacare survey is live

Copied and pasted from Facebook. I just got off the phone, and it worked. Take a minute to be heard.


Take Speaker Paul Ryan’s ACA/Obamacare survey. I called about 6 times getting “Ryan afterhours” this box is closed. Briefly I thought I’d accidentally called an Adult After hours chat line. About the 7th time I got silence and about 1 min 56 seconds later I was welcomed to the office of Speaker Ryan. Follow the prompts

Our incoming administration wants to dismantle the ACA, also known as “Obamacare,” and replace it with something else — but it’s not going to be very easy for them to do that. Paul Ryan in particular is on the privatization side when it comes to healthcare. That’s why Paul Ryan is conducting a phone survey right now to invite Americans to share their thoughts on Obama’s healthcare plan.

It’s a very short survey. There’s only one question: do you support Obama’s plan, or not? Luckily for those of us who have social anxiety, there won’t be a human being on the other end. It’s a robot conducting the survey. Here’s what you do:

1.) Call (202) 225–3031.

2.) If you get a recorded message saying the mailbox is full, CALL BACK. The mailbox is not actually full. (I GOT THROUGH ON THE SEOND TRY.)

3.) When you call back, if you hear silence instead of the “mailbox is full” recording, STAY ON THE LINE. I had to wait about a minute and thirty seconds before anyone actually started talking. Eventually, a recorded voice invited me to choose from a series of options; I chose the option that invited me to participate in the ACA survey.

4.) The survey begins with a very long recorded message about healthcare. It’s a pretty biased message. You’ll probably get a kick out of it. After that long monologue, the recorded message will ask you if you support Obama’s plan or not. Again, that’s the only question.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
