Daily Call To Action: March 10th, 2017

March 9, 2017 The Call – Reject #TrumpCare TrumpCare was written by a small group of Republicans under tight wraps until unveiled on Monday. It is now being jammed through the House and two House panels have already approved it following all night sessions. The House is moving at breakneck speed with little consideration of the impact of the bill, which overhauls nearly a fifth of the total US economy and has life or death consequences for many. The House Republicans have even refused to wait for the Congressional Budget Committee to “score” the legislation to estimate how many will lose coverage, what the impact will be on premiums and what the impact will be on federal and state budgets. There has been a storm of criticism of the bill including a rejection of TrumpCare by the American Medical Association and AARP. The American people deserve to have a careful and methodical approach to a bill revamping a fifth the economy and affecting the lives and health of all Americans. Furthermore, the distinct possibility that we can defeat this bill presents an alluring opportunity to put a chink in the President’s armor by denying him the ability to make good on a central campaign promise. Your Action Call all three of your members of Congress and ask them to vote against TrumpCare until it has been reviewed by the Congressional Budget Office and its implications for coverage and costs are fully considered. Script “Hi. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP]. I’m calling to urge [Rep/Sen____] to vote against Trumpcare until it has been reviewed by the Congressional Budget Office and its implications for coverage and costs are fully considered. It’s irresponsible to pass a bill with such profound effects on people’s lives and the economy without the input of the CBO. I greatly appreciate your time.”
