    Does it actually help writing to your Senator about the health care repeal?

    A friend of mine strongly recommended that I write a snail mail to my Senator asking not to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a plan in place that provides better, more affordable care, to at least as many people as those covered now.
    I did it.
    Now I am wondering... Do Senators really read those letters? Can my letter make a difference on how my senator will vote?
    What's your opinion?

    Imo I would like to see you write an open letter to your senator in a hub, and see what kind of comments you get. What cogent convincing arguments would you include to persuade the senator.

      I'd agree to read it - so far the only reasons are not really reasons, but shifts in coverages and financial gain for Obamas friends,

    I have emailed my Senator about another issue and gotten a specific response back, so I think they do read their correspondence (or someone in their office does).  As to whether it will influence their vote, I can't say.  I'd be curious to see what others have to say.
