Senate Vote Pulled - Let's Kill This Bill NOW

June 28, 2017

Good news! Thanks to massive opposition from people like YOU, Mitch McConnell (Cecil the Turtle) had to delay his planned vote on the healthcare wealthcare bill.

Now is a perfect time to call your Senators (especially if they are Republicans but go right ahead and call those Dems, too to say thank you for standing up for your health) to remind them that you will not compromise on certain key things in any healthcare bill.

Script is below and our friends at the National Young Farmers Coalition have put together this lovely list of all the Senators' legislative aides that work on healthcare so you can call and email them directly rather than trying to get through on the main number for a nice change of pace!

1. Find your Senators' healthcare aide info in this super helpful sheet from the National Young Farmers Coalition.

2. When you get through, you can say:

"Hi, my name is ___ and I'm calling from ___. I'm calling today to urge the Senator to protect my health and the lives of 24 million other Americans by rejecting any version of the healthcare bill that makes it harder for Americans like me to get coverage or that makes it more expensive for people who are sick, who are elderly or who are female to get coverage. I am also adamantly opposed to any healthcare bill that defunds Planned Parenthood."

If you have a healthcare or Affordable Care Act/Obamacare story of your own, you can also share it with them. Then thank them for taking your call. Always be polite.

3. Repeat with the other legislative aides for your other Senators.

4. Once you're done with those calls, take a moment to email them all directly, too.

5. Share this post with at least five friends who share your politics - ideally, focusing on those who live in states with at least one Republican Senator.
