From Indivisible Oregon...

**CALL TO ACTION** 
Monday, June 26, 2017
—————————————————————————————
STAY FOCUSED, KEEP CALLING TO DEFEAT TRUMPCARE
—————————————————————————————
#KillTheBill
#NoCutsNoCaps
#AmericanDeathCareAct
The Senate version of Trumpcare is undeniably cruel. Medicaid funding will be devastated. Preexisting condition coverage is not safe. Lifetime caps will return. Planned Parenthood is defunded. http://ind.pn/2tz8BOd
Trumpcare will cost lives http://ampr.gs/2t0ihnp and hurt so many http://bit.ly/2sbnW5L
The GOP is determined to get this done – to give the wealthy a tax break. A few GOP Senators may be voicing concern but leadership will make deals or twist arms to get to yes http://nyti.ms/2tazQSd. The House will to work the weekend if Trumpcare passes the Senate http://bit.ly/2rRCCHG
Trumpcare could be law by next week unless we act NOW. 
Here in Oregon, we must ask our Democratic 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. 
Keep calling to defeat Trumpcare!
—————————————————————————————
**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.”
