ACTION: CALL TO SAVE THE ACA

From Indivisible Oregon...

**CALL TO ACTION** 
Friday, July 21, 2017 
—————————————————————————————
NO REPEAL – SAVE THE ACA
—————————————————————————————
#NoRepeal
#FixtheACA
#KillTheBill
After failing to pass Trumpcare this week, Trump promised to “let Obamacare fail” and “won’t own it” when it does (http://nbcnews.to/2u5xZfj). 
Let that sink in. The President of the Unites States is rooting for the failure of our healthcare system. By working for ACA repeal, Trump is using the power of the presidency to
-- leave 32 MILLION without insurance
-- increase premiums 100%
-- leave 75% of the country without an insurer in the individual market
How does this make America great?
While Trump and the Congressional GOP hash out legislation to take away healthcare, the administration is doing everything it can to undermine Obamacare. These efforts have already lead to premium increases (http://lat.ms/2rRhNAf). They went as far as using TAXPAYER dollars to run an ad campaign AGAINST Obamacare (http://thebea.st/2vmanmA).
Right now the GOP is making deals to pass Trumpcare. They are also working on a straight ACA/Obamacare repeal. They are determined to pass something.
The fight to save our healthcare must continue. We do this by calling our Senators and helping friends and family do the same. We do this by joining the conversation. 
We are in this together. A healthy America is a strong America. 
————————————————————————————
**ACTION 1: CALL OUR SENATORS (if you can’t call during business hours, leave a voice mail! It all makes a difference!)**
SAMPLE SCRIPT
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am very worried that Trumpcare will pass or there will an ACA repeal. We cannot go backwards as a country on healthcare. Please do all you can to stop the ACA repeal and Trumpcare. Please work to fix the ACA. Thank you.
—————————————————————————————
**ACTION 2: HELP FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN RED STATES CALL SWING SENATORS.
Swing Senators are getting political pressure to ignore their constituents and vote for the ACA repeal or pass Trumpcare. Please call everyone you know and help them tell their Senators DO NOT repeal the ACA or pass Trumpcare. 
—————————————————————————————
**ACTION 3: SHARE THIS DAILY ACTION ON SOCIAL MEDIA**
Please share this action and any others you find in support of the ACA far and wide on social media. We must work to make it clear to Senators, Representatives and the American people we cannot go backwards on healthcare.
