From Indivisible Oregon..
**CALL TO ACTION**
Friday, June 23, 2017
————————————————————————————
THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
CALLS NEEDED NOW TO STOP TRUMPCARE.

#ShowUsTheBill
#NoHearingNoVote
#NoCutsNoCaps

Analysis shows the Senate’s Trumpcare/AHCA bill is a TAX CUT for the wealthy paid for by SLASHING MEDICAID http://nyti.ms/2txOsrV.

The bill is so severe President Obama spoke out http://bit.ly/2tUfEQS.

This is NOT the final bill.  Now comes political theater:
--GOP Senators voice concern
--Meaningless amendments are passed
--GOP claims the bill is fixed
--Trumpcare passes the Senate
-- http://bit.ly/2rX256y, http://bit.ly/2t1akyu

We must KEEP CALLING and make it clear that Trumpcare cannot be saved.  

Here in Oregon, we must ask our Senators to block Senate business by:  (1) “Withholding unanimous consent” to slow the Senate’s business http://cnn.it/2sHXDbh and (2) “Filibuster by amendment” to delay the vote and give the public time to review the bill.  http://bit.ly/2tezmao

Meanwhile, we need “swing” senators to vote against the bill.  Please call everyone you know in AK, WV, ME, NV, AZ, CO, OH, PA, LA, AR and ask them to tell their Senators to vote NO on Trumpcare – no matter what “improvements” are made to the bill. It cannot be saved.

Let’s get those NO votes!!

—————————————————————————————
**ACTION 1: CALL BOTH SENATORS**

VOICEMAILS COUNT TOO.  KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU TALK TO A STAFFER OR CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE.  LEAVING MESSAGES ON THE WEEKEND WORKS TOO.

SAMPLE SCRIPT
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I want to thank Senator [--] for standing up against Trumpcare. I am appalled by the Senate GOP’s version of Trumpcare and their secretive process. I am asking the Senator to withhold unanimous consent and filibuster by amendment until there are meaningful hearings to discuss how to fix Obamacare.  Trumpcare cannot be saved.”

 **ACTION 2: CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN AK, WV, ME, NV, AZ, CO, OH, PA, LA, AR
Ask them to tell their Senators to vote NO on Trumpcare – no matter what amendments are attached.
Then send them to https://www.trumpcareten.org/ (The Indivisble Guide’s site for all the low down on the fight against Trumpcare).
