Call THIS AM - Tell Your Rep To Vote NO on New (Even Worse) Healthcare Bill

April 28, 2017

I'm having déjà vu... The Republicans have cobbled together an even sorrier excuse for a health care bill and are pushing it to a vote that may take place TODAY (Friday).

You know the drill - call your Representative this morning and urge her or him to vote no on this monstrosity (which is so awful that the Republicans were careful to ensure that their own healthcare would be exempt from its provisions, by the way.) You can read more about the plan here and here.

1. Call your Representative as soon as the phones open today (Friday). Click here to find your Representative if you don't already have her or him in your phone.

2. You may have to try several offices before you get through to a staffperson. When someone does pick up or if you can leave a message, here's your script: "Hi, my name is ___ and I'm calling from ___ to urge Rep. ___ to protect my health and the lives of 24 million other Americans by voting NO on the latest Republican attempt to repeal the ACA." Then thank them for taking your call. Always be polite. If you have a healthcare story of your own, please feel free to share it. Other points you may want to mention:
  • This plan would take health care away from 24 million Americans over the next 10 years.
  • It would end protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
  • It would make premiums increase and coverage decrease.
  • It's being pushed through too quickly (again) to allow the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office score it.)
3. Forward this email to ten friends and ask them to join you in calling their Reps before noon.

4. Share this on Facebook and Twitter - we need an overwhelming outcry!
