The personal is political, but the political is also personal. The gleeful destruction of the Affordable Care Act by Trump and the Republican Congress isn’t just “bad for the country” – it’s bad for you. And yes, that does mean YOU!
Unless you’re a completely healthy zillionaire whose family members are all also completely healthy, you’re probably going to find yourself on this chart. See how the new law is likely to affect you and yours, and tell your story to your Senator when you call about the Senate bill:
Find yourself? We certainly all did! And that means it’s GO time … and remember, if the line is busy, our MoCs have said they count phone calls and emails the same.
“Hi. My name is ___, my zip code is ___, and I’m with Indivisible East Bay. I don’t need a response.”
Thank you for fighting hard against the GOP’s efforts to deprive millions of Americans of healthcare in order to pay for a huge tax cut for the wealthy. Please continue to object to all unanimous consent requests until Trumpcare dies.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (email): (415) 393-0707
Sen Kamala Harris (email): (415) 355-9041
While our CA senators do their best to stop this bill, let these GOP senators know that their Actions Have Consequences and their YEA votes will mean you work (and fundraise) against them starting right now!
If you have friends or family residing in Nevada, Arizona, or Texas, please have them call these senators and demand NO votes on #TrumpCare.
Nevada Sen. Dean Heller (email): (775) 686-5770
DC: (202) 224-6244
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake (email): (602) 840-1891
DC: (202) 224-4521
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (email): (956) 686-7339
DC: (202) 224-5922
After your calls are made, use Indivisible National’s ingenious tool to slow down the process, in effect filibustering the bill by submitting thousands of amendments. Fill out the form with your name and contact info – a copy of your amendment will be delivered to your Senators’ health care staffers and to Senator Schumer.
