STAY FOCUSED, KEEP CALLING TO DEFEAT TRUMPCARE
The Senate version of Trumpcare is undeniably cruel. Medicaid funding will be devastated. Preexisting condition coverage is not safe. Lifetime caps will return. Planned Parenthood is defunded. http://ind.pn/2tz8BOd
The GOP is determined to get this done – to give the wealthy a tax break. A few GOP Senators may be voicing concern but leadership will make deals or twist arms to get to yes http://nyti.ms/2tazQSd. The House will to work the weekend if Trumpcare passes the Senate http://bit.ly/2rRCCHG.
Trumpcare could be law by next week unless we act NOW!
Here in Oregon, we must ask our Democratic Senators to block Senate business by: (1) “Withholding unanimous consent” to slow the Senate’s business http://cnn.it/2sHXDbh and (2) “Filibuster by amendment” to delay the vote and give the public time to review the bill. http://bit.ly/2tezmao
Meanwhile, we need “swing” senators to vote against the bill. Please call everyone you know in AK, WV, ME, NV, AZ, CO, OH, PA, LA, AR and ask them to tell their Senators to vote NO on Trumpcare – no matter what “improvements” are made to the bill. It cannot be saved.
Keep calling to defeat Trumpcare!
**ACTION 1: CALL SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY**
VOICEMAILS COUNT TOO. KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU TALK TO A STAFFER OR CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE. THE NUMBER OF CALLS MATTERS!
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I want to thank Senator [–] for standing up against Trumpcare. I am appalled by the Senate GOP’s version of Trumpcare and their secretive process. I am asking the Senator to withhold unanimous consent and filibuster by amendment until there are meaningful hearings to discuss how to fix Obamacare. Trumpcare cannot be saved.”
**ACTION 2: CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN AK, WV, ME, NV, AZ, CO, OH, PA, LA, AR
