**CALL TO ACTION**

————————————————————————————
TRUMPCARE VOTE DELAYED -- BUT IT’S NOT OVER
————————————————————————————
#KillTheBill
#NoCutsNoCaps
#AmericanDeathCareAct

By raising our voices against Trumpcare/AHCA we delayed a vote in the Senate!! http://nyti.ms/2sYf45e

WE DID THIS.  Our pressure here and across the country is working. But our work is far from done. Remember what happened in the House: Trumpcare seemed dead; then deals were made to move the bill to the right -- and it passed http://wapo.st/2skoCFY.

Senator Mitch McConnell is already working on ways to get Senators to yes http://bit.ly/2tVWU4d, http://bit.ly/2sfbqqI.  He plans to reintroduce the bill after the 4th of July recess and have a vote mid-July http://bit.ly/2sPgelg.

We MUST protect America’s healthcare.

We MUST keep up the pressure.

We MUST stay focused.

We MUST kill the bill.

We do this by
• Standing by Senators Merkley and Wyden. We MUST keep calling and showing support.  They are leading the resistance in the Senate http://bit.ly/2sfExu8, http://bit.ly/2tVLbTh.
• Calling on our Reps to speak out against Trumpcare http://bit.ly/2sZtD8Z
• Helping our friends and family in red states tell their “swing” senators to vote NO on Trumpcare – no matter what deal is offered.

We MUST resist over the 4th of July recess. Gather your friend and make a plan.

STAY LOUD OUT THERE!!
 ————————————————————————————
**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.
