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.)
