Sean Patrick Maloney Dem out of New York

was just on Rachel. Vowing to "Adopt a District". Have Dem Reps go into districts where R's won't hold town halls!

Watch a repeat of Rachel if you can!

1. I saw that! What a terrific idea! He really put the JA Pub in as corner. He either holds his

own Town Halls, or his Dem "Friend" will hold Dem Town Halls in his Pub district! I give Patrick a big cheer for even thinking of this.

6. It's already happening:

An email I just got

"65,000 NY19 constituents stand to lose their healthcare, 300,000 more with pre-existing conditions will be at risk of either paying skyrocketing premiums or lose their coverage, our seniors will face an age tax, Planned Parenthood will be defunded and women's health issues will be treated as excuses to jack up insurance costs.

John Faso's vote to repeal the ACA was morally bankrupt. He owes us answers.

We're inviting NY19 constituents to a Healthcare Town Hall in Kingston this Monday night from 6.30-9pm at the Senate Garage: 4 N Front St. We extended an invitation to John Faso as well, he hasn't responded.

But Sean Patrick Maloney has.

Congressman Maloney will come to our town hall Monday whether or not Faso decides to uphold his pledge to be a part of open, public town halls (a pledge, much like his promise to protect healthcare, he has not upheld.)

Sign up for our Town Hall here. And please sign up on Facebook.

Before our Healthcare Town Hall make sure to sign up for our Spring Canvass - talking to voters and registering new voters in NY19 became that much more important following Faso's unconscionable vote to repeal the ACA."

9. Yep. This group is on top of it: NY19 Votes

A lot of us will be out canvassing with them this Sunday throughout parts of the NY 19th CD. From one to 6:00PM. You don't need to live in the district to participate, and some training is provided:

Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, (D, NY), talks with Rachel Maddow about the pressure he is putting on GOP Rep. John Faso who represents a neighboring district and broke his promise to constituents with his vote for the Republicans health care bill.

16. We sure need one here - in NE New York, no less!

But we already have a Democratic candidate who has stepped up for 2018! He held his first Q&A last month!

21. I saw that and the thought that shot through my mind was "Run for President, Sean!"

BOOM. Well, he's now on my list of BIGTIME Bench-Strengthers and Maybe-Presidential-Candidate-Or-Even-President-Someday.

And then he threw in a quick aside about how he strives to work in a bipartisan manner, and how he's done a lot of reaching out across the aisle. Well, you'd need that in a President, certainly. And he's young. Yet another point on his side of the scoreboard. Smart, informed, articulate, authentic, compassionate, seems genuinely interested in the plight of his people - and in this case, of course, his district neighbor's people (since that neighbor's staffers don't seem to be answering his phone these days). And he photographs well, too - a very pleasant look, not too handsome, generally non-threatening. He has a "regular guy" appeal.

Btw, I think that's a FFFFFRRRREEEEEEEEAAAAAAKIN' Brilliant idea!!! That idea is Brilliant! OMG. Did he think that up himself? Then he's shrewd as hell as a strategist (which we desperately need), because this is FREAKIN' BRILLIANT!!! And this should go farther than just other Dem Reps serve as surrogates, prospective opponents should do that, too.

Seriously. Prospective Democratic candidates seeking to unseat these bastards should step forward! What an exquisite way to introduce yourselves and engage with prospective voters! "Hi - I'm (your name here) and I'm thinking of running against (name of GOP incumbent) next year. I'LL do his/her town hall with you! I'd be honored to! He/She may be afraid to face you but I'll step up! Let's do one ANYWAY! Ask me anything! I'd love to meet you because I'd love to represent you!

These folks NEED to reach out and find someone ready to be reached out to. NOW. This is an increasingly grim time. Especially if you're now, in actuality, facing the prospect of losing health care coverage. It is now a very real concern even for people on their employer's insurance, because of various slick, sneaky-ass moves imbedded for the purposes of manipulating or getting around whatever poor excuse for a health care plan they finally come up with. There is FEAR out there. There's fear within families - the fear of kids who dread coming home from school one random afternoon and discovering that their mom has been snatched for deportation. There is FEAR out there. There's a general fear throughout the population about this vulgar, bloated, vainglorious orange jackass starting World War Three - with his mouth. There is FEAR out there. People are FEARFUL. I've brought up my age here before - 63. I've never seen this. I've NEVER seen this level of fear. Just plain abject FEAR. I watched that breast cancer survivor Xeni Jardin actually starting to cry during an interview on the Chris Hayes show - out of fear because of a grave illness that left her with a pre-existing condition and the very real prospects of losing her health insurance. Crying! That was NO fake. Not fake news. Not fake tears. FEAR. We need new, sympathetic, reassuring young faces like Maloney to come forward, inspire, encourage. His time may be NOW.

Sean Patrick Maloney is really looking pretty doggone terrific right now. And if they LIKE you, if you're likable, you're starting halfway home already. A star is born! This guy is worth watching and his career is worth following.
