Rep. Kennedy emphasized how important it is to have constituents call his office around issues, and especially when difficult debates are going on to know that his constituents "have his back" (e.g. during GOP's "Obamacare" replacement bill debate in the House, Energy and Commerce Committee, where Kennedy forcefully argued against the replacement bill).
