thursday 4/27/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
URGENT: WE HAVE 48 HOURS TO KILL TRUMPCARE FOR GOOD.
ONLY 37% OF AMERICANS WANT OBAMACARE REPEALED. THE UNINSURED RATE COULD DOUBLE.
"We have 48 hours to defeat TrumpCare... again. And it's going to come down to YOUR constituent power. Use the information in this document to make sure that your representatives are committed not only to upholding the ACA as a law but supporting it as a means for affordable health care coverage for millions of Americans.
Republican Members of Congress are trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA)--again. They want to move forward even though their bill strips coverage from 24 million Americans, even though in March they had to embarrassingly pull their bill from the House floor before a vote, even though a recent Kaiser Health poll shows that 74% of respondents said Republicans should do what they can to make the Affordable Care Act work. This is unacceptable" (Indivisible Guide).
HOW TO USE YOUR VOICE:
1) Call the Capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121
2) To Reach Your Representatives, Press 2.
3) To Reach Your Senators, Press 1.

Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling to add my name to the sea of voices in our state who support the most important provisions of Affordable Care Act and REJECT any plan that would eliminate protections for those with preexisting conditions. I want my representative to vote AGAINST TrumpCare.
The new Republican amendment, introduced Tuesday night, would allow states to waive out of ObamaCare’s ban on preexisting conditions. This means that insurers could once again, under certain circumstances, charge sick people higher premiums than healthy people.
What we need is an honest and fair improvement of the current laws. The GOP’s new plan would reduce the government’s role in helping people afford health insurance and would likely leave millions of people without it. Between 6 million and 10 million people would have lost coverage if the last plan was passed. What's more, Tom MacArthur's amendment allows Congress and their stadd to keep ObamaCare regulations. That is wrong.
