DID YOUR BALLOT ARRIVE? IF NOT, CLICK HERE OR LET US KNOW SO WE CAN HELP!
DAYS UNTIL BALLOTS DUE: 13
OPPOSE GOP LIES AND DECEPTION
Republicans think Americans are dumb. With the Midterms approaching, they have announced that after the elections, the GOP wants to:
- Repeal the ACA
- Slash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to pay for the $1.5 Trillion deficit caused by the Trump Tax Scam
- Add to the deficit with another tax cut
At the same time, Republicans are attempting electoral jujitsu by shamelessly lying and campaigning that they are for coverage of pre-existing conditions, even though they have tried everything – votes to repeal, de-funding, administrative changes, lawsuits — to destroy the ACA, and now seek to repeal it this year.
When Republicans passed the Tax Scam in the middle of the night with no bipartisan support, we warned that they planned to use the tremendous deficit as an excuse to decimate the social safety net. That’s what they are doing now and they’re doubling down by proposing to . . .
Slash Taxes Still More!
But we are not dumb. We will hold Republicans accountable for their lies and deception. We will vote in a new Congress.
Raise Your Voice!
Fight The Lame Duck Congress!
Protect The Safety Net!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because the GOP is campaigning on a platform of lies. They say that they are for coverage of pre-existing conditions, but seek to destroy the ACA. They said that the Tax Scam would pay for itself, but now they want to use the tremendous deficits it created as an excuse to cut social programs. Please continue to work with us to flip the House and the Senate! After the election, please do everything you can to STOP Republicans from using the lame duck session to enact their destructive, cruel, and harmful agenda! Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent AND VOTER from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because you are a leader of a GOP Midterm campaign that is based on a platform of lies. Last year, you promised that your legislation to repeal and replace the ACA would cover pre-existing conditions. That wasn’t true. This year, you’ve proposed the deceptive “Pre-existing Conditions Protection Act,” but experts say the “coverage” would be prohibitively expensive. You claimed that the Tax Scam would pay for itself, but now you want to use the tremendous deficits you created as an excuse to cut social programs. Mr. Walden, STOP LYING! Listen to your constituents. Don’t vote against our interests in the lame duck session!”
