WEEKLY CALLS TO ACTION! SAVE THE ACA!

1. ACT NOW TO KEEP TRUMPCARE DEAD

Caller: Hello! My name is [ ] and I’m calling from Texas. Can you tell me how Senator [ ] will vote on the Graham-Cassidy health care bill if it comes up for a vote?

Staffer: The Senator hasn’t reviewed the text of the bill yet and hasn’t taken a position on it. There is no vote scheduled on that bill though.

Caller: I want Senator [ ] to oppose Graham-Cassidy. The bill is just like other TrumpCare bills in that it destroys Medicaid as we know it by turning Medicaid into a capped system. This hurts children with disabilities, seniors, and even victims of natural disasters like Harvey and Irma. It also takes away funding to help people afford health insurance through the marketplace, and it hurts states that have expanded Medicaid.

Staffer: Obamacare is a failure. The Senator believes we must stabilize the market and lower premiums.

Caller: If that’s what the Senator wants to do, then supporting the bipartisan, transparent process that Senators Alexander and Murray are leading through regular order would be a better option than supporting the Graham-Cassidy bill. I expect Senator [ ] to respect regular order and reject the Graham-Cassidy bill if it comes to a vote.

Staffer: I’ll let the Senator know your thoughts.

Caller: Yes, please do. I will be watching this vote closely and I expect Senator [ ] to oppose. Please take down my contact information so you can let me know what Senator [ ] decides to do.

2. OPPOSE THE GOP’S LAST-DITCH EFFORT TO REPEAL THE ACA

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to urge Senator [CORNYN/CRUZ] to vote against the Graham-Cassidy ACA repeal plan. Any healthcare plan that eliminates Medicaid expansion, protections for those with pre-existing conditions, and hasn’t been scored by the CBO is unacceptable. The American people want a bipartisan approach to repairing the ACA, not a repeal of it.
Thank you for your time.

3. GOVERNORS: OPPOSE THE GRAHAM-CASSIDY ACA REPEAL

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling because I’m deeply worried about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and how it will affect our state. I ask the governor to stand up against the reckless actions of the US Senate and loudly voice opposition the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill. Americans want a bipartisan plan to fix to the ACA, not a repeal that takes away necessary funding and consumer protections.
[OPTIONAL: Share a personal story of why the ACA is so important to you, your family, and/or your community]
Thank you for your time.

4. DEMAND A CLEAN 2018 BUDGET WITH NO POLICY RIDERS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to urge Senator [CORNYN/CRUZ] to pass a 2018 appropriations bill that contains no partisan policy riders. Instead of pushing forward controversial one-sided agendas, Congress must pass a fair, bipartisan spending bill in the best interest of all Americans.
Thank you for your time and attention.

5. DEFEND UNDOCUMENTED CHILDHOOD IMMIGRANTS WITH THE DREAM ACT

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
[IF CALLING SENATE]: I’m calling to urge Senator [CORNYN/CRUZ] to take immediate action and pass S. 1615, the DREAM Act. Our DREAMers deserve legal status and a path to citizenship, and I expect the Senator to act swiftly to help the 800,000 people who relied on DACA for access to jobs, education, and security.
[IF CALLING HOUSE]: I’m calling to urge Representative Arrington to take immediate action and pass H.R. 3591, the American Hope Act. Our DREAMers deserve legal status and a path to citizenship, and I expect Representative Arrington to act swiftly to help the 800,000 people who relied on DACA for access to jobs, education, and security.
