ACTION | SHARE YOUR TRUMPCARE STORY

ACTION for Tuesday, May 9: Make your voices heard! Sen Ron Wyden is asking us to speak out against Trumpcare, as the Senate is about to vote on whether to approve it. Let your members of Congress know you want nothing to do with a plan that would take insurance away from 24 million Americans, increase premiums for seniors by 750%, and drastically reduce Medicaid funding.
**CALL TO ACTION**

STOP TRUMPCARE: SHARE OUR STORIES
——————————————————————————————
#DumpTrumpCare
#ProtectOurCare
Last week, the House voted YES on TrumpCare – a plan to deny health insurance to 24 million Americans and cut $880 billion from Medicaid. This bill robs from the poor to give to the rich: it will cost American jobs (http://nyti.ms/2qQK5FU), put people at risk of bankruptcy (http://bit.ly/2qPOIB4) and give the wealthy a tax break.
-- TrumpCare passed the House, but it is not the law of the land. It must go through the Senate -- and it must die there.
-- The Senate needs only 51 votes instead of the usual 60. However, they have the option to scrap the bill and start over. http://nyti.ms/2pojsrB
First, we must make it clear to the HOUSE we DISAGREE with TrumpCare (http://bit.ly/2qEwNQG)
Second, we must tell our SENATORS that they must either improve the ACA or vote NO on TrumpCare.
Senator Wyden is asking for us to make our voices heard http://bit.ly/2pmvQZq and http://bit.ly/2q0LsD2.
We must let him know we’re firmly behind him. We must share our stories: On the phone, in person, on social media.
