ACTION: Call to Stomp Out Trumpcare

From Indivisible Oregon...

**CALL TO ACTION**
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
———————————————
STOMP OUT TRUMPCARE  
———————————————
#ProtectOurCare
Over ONE MILLION Oregonians and many more millions of Americans stand to lose healthcare if the ACA is repealed. Oregon could also lose up to 42,000 jobs.
- The new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis projects up to 14 million people will lose coverage within the FIRST YEAR and up to 24 million in the next decade. 
- TrumpCare gives the richest Americans and corporations a $592 billion tax break (yes, that's a "B" for "billion"), while eliminating Medicaid expansion and leaving low income Americans unable to afford healthcare.
- Since TrumpCare was introduced, AARP, American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and many others have objected because it will harm too many people
- All Oregon MoCs (except Walden) object to TrumpCare. Convince your representative to do everything possible to protect the ACA and the Americans who rely on it.

SAMPLE SCRIPT for BONAMICI [D1], BLUMENAUER [D3], DEFAZIO [D4], SCHRADER [D5]
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am calling to thank the Representative [--] for speaking out against the AHCA, I want to urge [—] to do everything he/she can to protect the gains made under the ACA. Will [—-] oppose any congressional action to repeal ACA?
SAMPLE SCRIPT for WALDEN [D2]
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am calling to let Rep. Walden know that I think the rushed approach to the AHCA is irresponsible. I want Rep. Walden, instead of supporting the AHCA, to preserve the historic coverage and affordability gained through the ACA.
