**CALL TO ACTION**

—————————————————————————————
KEEP UP THE PRESSURE ON HEALTH CARE
—————————————————————————————
#KillTheBill
#NoCutsNoCaps
#AmericanDeathCareAct
The CBO score is out for the Senate’s version of Trumpcare/AHCA.

22 MILLION will lose health insurance. 15 MILLION will lose healthcare in the NEXT YEAR. https://usat.ly/2sKqxHj

In addition:
--the elderly with low income will pay more for less health care http://bit.ly/2tg8pqn, http://bit.ly/2saOlp7.
--millions will lose employer based healthcare http://bit.ly/2sfIXvU
--Medicaid is capped and cut http://n.pr/2saID6v

The GOP is determined to amend, bully, and get to yes this week http://bit.ly/2saU0LF.

Here in Oregon, our Democratic Senators must: (1) “Withhold 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

We can help our Senators by writing amendments to use for filibustering. Go to https://www.ouramendments.org/ for a boilerplate amendment. It states that you are protected from the Senate bill. Fill one out for everyone who matters to you.

Meanwhile, we need “swing” senators to vote against the bill. Please ask everyone you know in AK, WV, ME, NV, AZ, CO, OH, PA, LA, AR and WI to tell their Senators to vote NO on Trumpcare.

We have FOUR days to get this done. TIME TO GET LOUD! http://bit.ly/2saNmoM

—————————————————————————————
**ACTION 1: WRITE AMENDMENTS WITH INDIVISIBLE

It’s fun, it’s empowering, and YOU CAN WRITE ONE FOR EVERYONE YOU KNOW. Go to
https://www.ouramendments.org/

—————————————————————————————
**ACTION2: CALL BOTH SENATORS**

VOICEMAILS COUNT TOO. KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE WITH A PERSON OR A MACHINE.

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