Daily Call To Action: May 5th, 2017

May 5, 2017 The Call – #Trumpcare Trumpcare passed the House on Thursday by a narrow margin. Also known as the AHCA, the bill was hastily cobbled together and would throw millions of Americans off Medicaid and make health insurance unaffordable for millions more, especially those with pre-existing conditions. This is why all Democratic representatives and 20 Republican representatives voted against the bill. Ben Wikler has a great Twitter thread on how our first reaction to the passage of Trumpcare should strategically be outrage and blow-back in order to show the Senate, which must take up the bill next, the political cost of passing it. Your Action Call your member of the House. If he/she is a Republican and not on this list, let them know how disappointed you are in their vote and that you will remember it in 2018. If your member is a Democrat or one of the Republicans on the list, call to thank them for their vote. Script Hi. This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP]. I’m calling because I want [Rep____] to know I am very disappointed that they voted for the AHCA and that I’m going to be thinking about it when I vote in 2018. [Optional: Describe how losing the ACA would affect you personally.] I appreciate your time!
