A REMARKABLE PIECE OF RESEARCH

I stumbled on a truly splendid piece of research and  reporting that gives precise estimates of the numbers of people in each and every Congressional District who will lose their health coverage if the bill just passed by the House becomes law.  To access the Excel spreadsheet with the data, go to this site and then click on the link at the end of the main story [three paragraphs down.]  For example, in the 6th NC CD, to which I shall be moving in six weeks, a district represented by Republican Mark Walker, 78,600 people will lose their coverage.  Check out your own CD.  The 2018 off year election is going to be about this and nothing but this.  The Republicans own this now, regardless of what the Senate does, and we must make them eat it.

Thanks for that pointer -- very interesting, and useful.

About research, btw -- I'm going to have some time soon and would like to start calling my Congressional delegation regularly. Does anyone have any tips on what is the best way to keep up with what bills are being considered or voted on in Congress and who has voted how?

Talking Points Memo has a somewhat more visually appealing version where pictures of Representatives celebrating are annotated with data of how many of their constituents will loose coverage:
