saturday 4/22/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
TRUMP DEMANDS WALL OR ELSE NO HEALTHCARE.
ALL THE WHILE, LIBERTY WEEPS.
"President Trump is apparently trying to add another item to his resume of bumbled hostage-taking efforts this week, by threatening to sabotage the Affordable Care Act unless Democrats vote to fund a border wall with Mexico."
"The implicit threat here is that, if Democrats reject this deal, the White House will cease making the subsidy payments, and likely bring Obamacare crashing down."
"Before, Mexico was supposed to pay for the border wall. Now, Trump's threatening the health care of millions to get taxpayers to cover it" (SLATE).

trump's wall script
Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling today because I have learned the Trump Administration has threatened Democrats that unless they support Congressional funding for Trump's Wall, the White House will cease making subsidy payments to bring the Affordable Care Act crashing down.
This tactic did not work with the previous attempt to replace ObamaCare and it shouldn't work now. Using the lives of millions of people who rely on healthcare to serve as a gambling chip for a wall we don't need is bad policy. This will effectively threaten a program that over 17 million of our most vulnerable citizens rely on.
I please ask that my representative stand up against blatant attempts of political blackmail and say no to a wall we don't need and can't afford.
