ACA REPEAL BILL GOT WORSE OVERNIGHT – KEEP CALLING
Last night the GOP made changes to the ACA repeal bill to get Senators on board. The changes make an already craven, cruel bill far worse.
The latest ACA repeal, dubbed “Grassidy 2.0”:
• Increases money to Arizona, Kentucky and Alaska in a blatant attempt to buy off Senators McCain, Paul, and Murkowski who were (possibly) voting “no”
• Worsens protections for preexisting conditions and makes it easier to waive out of pocket caps to please hardline conservatives Cruz, Lee, and Paul

Not to mention that Oregonians will lose more funding per capita than any other state. http://nyti.ms/2hflew7
Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers summed it up: “I don’t understand how those supporting Cassidy Graham live with themselves. People will die and they will be responsible.” http://cnb.cx/2wKIFEl
The GOP will stop at nothing to repeal the ACA.
We must match their determination.
Constituents have the power to stop this bill.
Grab your phone and call!
**ACTION 1: CALL BOTH SENATORS**
(or leave a voice mail after hours)
My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon, [zip code]. I am even more OUTRAGED by the latest GOP ACA repeal bill—the Graham-Cassidy-Heller Amendment. The changes the GOP made last night make the bill even more dangerous. I’m glad you’re voting “no,” but we need you to do more. Please slow down senate business to a crawl, using every procedural tool available. We must stop this bill from coming to a vote before the end of the week. Thank you.”
