NEW HEALTH CARE BILL IN THE WORKS NOW

#NoCutsNoCaps
#AmericanDeathCareAct

The Washington Post reports that Sen. McConnell may send a new bill to the CBO by tomorrow so that it will receive a score in time for a possible vote when the Senate returns on July 11 http://wapo.st/2tlYXRn.

-- Our calls – and the sheer meanness of the bill – made enough Republicans nervous that McConnell had to postpone voting.
-- McConnell will bribe and bully Senators during the 4th of July recess to get them to yes
-- WE MUST RESIST while Senators are at home.

Momentum is with us. Republican governors are widely opposed. But don't count your chickens. Gather your friends and make a plan. STAND UP. RESIST. And have fun doing it!

-- Call both Senators daily. They need our help. They want our help.
-- Go to Senator Wyden and Merkley “IT’S NOT OVER” Rallies against Trumpcare on July 5th and 6th and/or town halls; details here: http://bit.ly/2qwYTxc
-- Call friends in Red States. The list of nervous Senators is growing. See http://theatln.tc/2tmBwXY  for today’s update, and Indivisible Guide: http://bit.ly/2s1MIpm
-- Call your Representative. House Democrats are preparing for a Senate bill according to Nancy Pelosi (June 22 of Pod Save America, linked here: http://bit.ly/2sj3vsh).

STAY LOUD OUT THERE!! WE CAN DO THIS!!
 ————————————————————————————
**ACTION 1: 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 and leading the resistance in the Senate.  Please know that I will continue to call and fight against Trumpcare. Together we can stop this bill in the Senate.“

 **ACTION 2:  CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE

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

SCRIPT FOR EVERYONE BUT WALDEN: “My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon.  Thank you for voting NO on Trumpcare in the House.  Please do all you can to speak out against the Senate bill to help make sure it doesn’t come up for a vote after the 4th of July recess.

SCRIPT FOR GREG WALDEN: “My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am appalled that Representative Walden’s was an architect of Trumpcare in the House. I’m aghast at what is happening with the bill in the Senate.  I will remember his role and his vote come November 2018.

 **ACTION 3: CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN RED STATES, ESP. AK, WV, ME, NV, AZ, CO, OH, PA, LA, AR, WI
