RESIST OVER 4TH OF JULY TO DEFEAT TRUMPCARE
Trumpcare/AHCA/BRCA hurts America. And it hurts Oregon. Trumpcare will mean:
• the number of uninsured in Oregon will triple by 2021
• 440,000 Oregonians are at risk to lose health coverage
• Oregon will face a $6.2 BILLION cost shift due to Medicaid cuts
• 23,000 jobs will be lost
We had a victory this past week when Trumpcare stalled in the Senate but the bill is still alive. We CANNOT let up. Mitch McConnell is working to have a vote when the Senate returns after the 4th of July recess http://bit.ly/2tpMpcc.
WE MUST RESIST while Senators are at home for the 4th of July recess.
Here is a game plan for the 4th of July recess:
• Call Senator Merkley and Senator Wyden DAILY. They need our support to lead the resistance against Trumpcare.
• Call Congressman Walden DAILY. He needs to hear that we will not accept legislation that puts the lives of Oregonians at risk!
• Help friends and family in red states tell their “swing” senators to vote NO on Trumpcare https://www.trumpcareten.org/.
• Check our Calls to Action next week for daily tailored actions to resist Trumpcare over the holiday.
• Join us as we march in the Ashland 4th of July parade. While we will not be carrying signs, we will be sending a message of unity and strength. We will hold our Members of Congress accountable! Additional details are available in the Events section on our website, https://ord2indivisible.org.
STAY LOUD to defeat Trumpcare!!
**ACTION 1: CALL SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY**
VOICEMAILS COUNT TOO. KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE WITH A PERSON OR A MACHINE.
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I want to thank Senator [–] for standing up against Trumpcare and leading the resistance in the Senate. Please know that I will continue to call and fight against Trumpcare. Together we can stop this bill in the Senate.“
**ACTION 2: CALL CONGRESSMAN WALDEN**
SCRIPT FOR GREG WALDEN: “My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am appalled that Representative Walden’s was an architect of Trumpcare in the House. I’m aghast at what is happening with the bill in the Senate. I will remember his role and his vote come November 2018.
**ACTION 3: CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN RED STATES, esp. AK, AR, AZ, CO, LA, ME, NV, OH, PA, WI, WV
Ask them to tell their Senators to vote NO on Trumpcare – no matter what deals are offered over the 4th of July recess. Then send them to https://www.trumpcareten.org/ (The Indivisible Guide’s site for all the low down on the fight against Trumpcare).
