DON’T FALL FOR THE SKINNY REPEAL
The Senate is debating other attempts to repeal the ACA. Do not despair. We still have time to stop this. Keep calling.
Yesterday’s motion to proceed opened debate on the Senate floor—which the GOP is using for political theatre. Behind the scenes, McConnell is crafting the “real” Trumpcare bill—which, as of this writing, looks like a “skinny repeal”.
This “skinny repeal” gets rid of the individual and employer mandates and some ACA taxes, and defunds Planned Parenthood. With these changes, 16 million Americans would lose their healthcare, insurance premiums would go up by 20%, and the insurance market would collapse (http://cnb.cx/2h4McG6, http://cnnmon.ie/2tLqME7).
The Dems are doing all they can to slow down this process. Senator Merkley is armed with hundreds of amendments with which to filibuster (http://bit.ly/2tKPUL9). We supplied many of those amendments, but we need to do more.
We need to sway 3 GOP Senators to vote NO on the final Trumpcare bill. And we need to do it now.
We can get 3 NO votes by helping red state constituents tell their senators to vote NO on the final Trumpcare bill—whatever it is.
We have worked so hard in our blue state. Now is our chance to make a difference in red states.
**ACTION: CALL AND KILL THE BILL**
Call constituents in Nevada and West Virginia, and ask them to call their senators to vote NO on TrumpCare! Use the Indivisible Guide’s new online tool. You will be calling fellow resisters—people who have attended marches and support progressive causes. All you need is your laptop or tablet and phone. Call on your own during a coffee break, or gather a group of friends in your living room for a calling party. (Wine and chocolate optional... just remind them to bring their own laptops and phones!) https://www.indivisibleguide.com/hubdialer-signup/
