Health “Care” Delayed but not Stopped
The pressure on the Senate must now become even more relentless.
1) If your senator is one of the GOP swing senators who have already come out against the bill - Heller (NV) and Collins (ME) - write to thank them. Then go after your other senator - see Options 3 or 4 below. It would be nice if everyone thanked Heller and Collins - just don’t tie up their telephones if you’re not a constituent - write, fax, or email instead.
2) If your senator is one of the other GOP swing senators - Murkowski (AK), Sullivan (AK), Capito (WV), Flake (AZ), Gardner (CO), Portman (OH), Toomey (PA), Cassidy (LA), Cotton (AR) - go to this Indivisible page, click on your state, and you’ll be given various suggested actions. Do as many actions as you can.
3) If your senator is a Democrat:
a) ask that they refuse to let the bill go to a vote on reconciliation; they can prevent this by adding
thousands of amendments;
b) ask that they loudly and publicly educate their constituents and the media about the disastrous
consequences of the GOP bill; and
c) if you haven’t taken June 27’s action yet, do so now.
4) If your senator is Republican, go to this Indivisible page, where you can find information about the impact of Trump”care” on your state. Put this information on your FB, Tweet it, complain about it to your senators. You’ll also find links to contact your senators and their legislative assistants (who are their aides for this issue).
N.B. Even if you’re really uncool like me and have only one Twitter follower, it’s still worth Tweeting. I saw that one of my Tweets lead to a click to a link to call a senator.
