G.O.P. Health Bill Faces Revolt From Conservative Forces


The Republicans are trying to get this passed as fast as they can before even the Congressional Budget Office can get a report done on how much it will cost and who it will hurt. Because of Senate rules, the Republicans can't afford to have more than 2 of their own not vote for it. So calling your Republican Congresspeople is worthwhile, especially if you are in a state that expanded Medicaid

ACTION: This is a topic to call your Senators and Representatives on this week.

Script: Hi my name is [NAME] and I live in [ZIP CODE]. I'm calling because I am against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and opposed to the Republicans Healthcare plan. The Republicans plan puts a financial burden on sick people and will cause millions to lose their insurance coverage and I want [Congress Person] to vote against it.

(Add in a personal story or other talking point you'd like to hit, as you will.)

ETA: Audio stream on Indivisible call is here

FWIW, even if the House manages to pass it this week like they're talking, the target date I saw for a Senate vote was mid-April.

I just finished listening to the Indivisible emergency call. One of the speakers was from the Center on Budget & Policy Priorities. Nerd alert!--they have a lot of info on financial impact of repeal. Their site at www.cbpp.org is still down because a zillion people went to it because of the call but it should be back eventually.

HOW FUCKING STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE? I mean, it would be a lot easier to get away with depriving millions of people of access to health care and giving a massive tax cut to plutocrats if you did the former first and then snuck around later for the latter.

Thank you for these links.

I've been having a lot of luck lately talking with my more conservative relatives with facts and questions, so this will help.
