INCO Weekly Newsletter 7/17

#KillTheBill: National Day of Action
RALLY with Indivisible North Coast Oregon!
Tuesday, July 18  •  1-3 pm
8th and Commercial - by the Post Office - Astoria

Bring a sign if you can • Smile and wave

INCO will join Indivisible groups across the nation by showing up together to say that TrumpCare would hurt our friends, our families and our country. We’re not letting that happen without a fight.
Our Action Priorities This Week

Defeat TrumpCare!
We can win this - this is what Indivisible was made for.
This week we apply our power where we have the most leverage: defeating TrumpCare. If we win on this ground, then it's harder for Trump to win on any other front.
 
Tell your Senators (Wyden, Merkley, Cantwell, Murray) to vote NO on the "motion to proceed."
This week's vote is delayed, but that doesn't mean we'll delay our pressure. The Congressional Budget Office score on the most recent iteration of this TrumpCare train wreck gives us ample reason to insist the Senate #KilltheBill.

Your voice is key to making sure McConnell doesn't get the 50 votes he needs to move the bill forward to a final vote. Tell them to stand firm against this outrageous tax cut for the wealthy, pretending to be a bill about health care.

STAY FOCUSED

Winning the 2018 elections motivated everyone at Resistance School July 13. We discussed "DIY-mocracy" and being smart issue advocates now - as we learn skills to listen and persuade.
