Keep The Pressure Up. Kill the AHCA.

Last week the AHCA passed in the House of Representatives. Now it’s up to the Senate to stop this bill before millions of Americans lose their healthcare coverage. Health care experts from across the political spectrum agree the bill is unworkable and suffers from fatal flaws. Even if you believe the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) needs to be replaced, this is likely not the replacement you want.

Take five minutes out of your day and demand something better from Congress.

STEP ONE:

Use the links below to the contact information for your representative and two senators.

STEP TWO:

Use this link to find out if your representative voted for or against the AHCA.

STEP THREE:

Use the phone script or form email below to contact your officials. Feel free to modify the message as you see fit. As a tip a PHONE CALL IS MORE LIKELY TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD AND COUNTED THAN AN EMAIL, but an email is better than nothing!

PHONE CALL SCRIPT FOR REPRESENTATIVES:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling the office of [NAME OF REPRESENTATIVE] because I am a constituent. I live at [ADDRESS, CITY, and STATE] and my phone number is [PHONE NUMBER].

[If your representative voted FOR the AHCA, say this:]

I’m calling to tell [NAME OF REPRESENTATIVE] I do not agree with the representative’s decision to vote for H.R. 1628 The American Healthcare Act. The bill is essentially a tax cut that robs millions of Americans of their healthcare. Please let my representative know they will not have my vote in 2018. Thank you for your time.

[If your representative voted AGAINST the AHCA, say this:]

I’m calling to thank [NAME OF REPRESENTATIVE] for their decision to vote against H.R. 1628 The American Healthcare Act. Thank you for showing that you care more about the millions of Americans who would lose healthcare coverage than you do about the millions of dollars in tax cuts for the wealthy. Please continue to fight for the health of all of us. Thank you for your time.

 

PHONE CALL SCRIPT FOR SENATORS:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling the office of [NAME OF SENATOR] because I am a constituent. I live at [ADDRESS, CITY, and STATE] and my phone number is [PHONE NUMBER].

I’m calling to ask the [SENATOR] to oppose by all means HR 1628 The American Health Care Act of 2017. This act will cause millions of Americans to lose coverage and creates enormous tax breaks for the wealthy in our country. Health care experts from across the political spectrum agree the bill is unworkable and suffers from fatal flaws. Please do not vote for this bill.

I ask that my representatives in Congress raise their voice on this issue and any others like it that arise.

You will be hearing from me on more issues in the future. Thank you for your time.
