While House Republicans partied, We The People occupied the barricades to push the barbarians back through the gate and all but nine House Republicans are diving for cover. Adam Gabbatt, writing in Big, angry crowds to fight back against Trumpcare for The Guardian, has the details:

After working hard to pass a bill that would strip millions of Americans of their health insurance, Congress is taking a well-earned recess for the next week. The idea is that politicians return to their home districts to meet their constituents. But if your representative is a Republican, you’ll have a hard time finding them.

According to the Town Hall project, which tracks face-to-face meetings held by members of Congress, only nine out of the 217 Republicans who voted for Thursday’s healthcare bill [that, of course includes my representative, Jame Bupkis Renacci, JH] have plans to hold town halls during recess week.

In lieu of the great Republican no-show, Indivisible, a progressive group which aims to use Tea Party tactics to influence politicians, has posted the names and office telephone numbers of every Republican who voted for the bill. Indivisible is encouraging people to call those representatives.
