Health Care Countdown
The Republicans are going to try and force through the health “care” bill on reconciliation, which means they will only need 50 votes instead of 60. Democrats can stall this process by means of relentlessly adding amendments until the GOP agrees to hold public hearings on the health “care” bill, which the CBO report now shows to be extremely damaging to public health.
Go to Indivisible’s page where you can fill out a request for your senator to submit an amendment. The amendment will be submitted by Indivisible in your name. Just follow the instructions on the page.
Indivisible suggests that you also print out a copy of the amendment and take it to your senators’ offices. If you prefer, you can email or fax it to your senators instead. Here’s what you have to do first - copy and paste the amendment into a file where you can substitute your name wherever it says [First Name Last Name] and substitute your state wherever it says [State}; then copy or attach the amendment which contains your name to the email or fax you send. This action has special importance if your senator/s is/are Democrats - they need to show some more gumption at this point.
