sunday 4/23/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
you're a rotten one, mr. trump.
trump holds millions of lives hostage for his wall.
As we wrote about yesterday, Donald Trump has made it clear that he wants his wall paid for, and he is willing to go to great lengths to get it.
Reports indicate he has threatened Congressional Democrats that unless they balk and support the wall's funding, the White House will stop funding subsidies for Obamacare, effectively causing it to crash down. (SLATE).
HOW TO USE YOUR VOICE:
This weekend, let's slam those congressional voice mails!

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.
