July 17, 2017 The Call – #ProtectOurCare #KilltheBill The revised Trumpcare bill unveiled last week was as bad as anticipated and worse than the previous Senate bill. The vote is likely to be so close that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had to postpone the vote because Senator John McCain (R-AZ) will be absent recovering from surgery. However, McConnell continues to try to cut deals with moderates to get them on board, and the outcome is still in the balance. The Republican sales pitch for the bill appears to be to lie about it. Hospitals, doctors, nurses, AARP, patient advocate groups and virtually all disease advocacy groups strongly oppose Trumpcare. Now is the time to put on maximum pressure to kill this awful bill. Democrats should be urged to use every possible tactic to defeat the BCRA. Republicans need to be told that any plan that benefits the wealthy and leaves sick and vulnerable Americans without insurance is unacceptable. A high volume of calls is needed to kill the AHCA and get on with the business of fixing Obamacare. Your Action Call both your senators and tell Democratic senators to stop Senate business if necessary to block the bill. Tell Republican senators that any bill that gives tax cuts to the wealthy and leaves sick and vulnerable Americans without insurance is wrong for the country. Talking Points
