Weekly Calls to Action June 19th – June 23rd

This week our calls will focus on healthcare:

1. PRESERVE MEDICAID COVERAGE AND EXPANSION

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling today to urge Senator [SEN. NAME] not to vote for any healthcare bill that ends Medicaid expansion or institutes a per capita federal funding structure. Medicaid is a cost-effective program that provides critical services to people of all ages, especially children and people with disabilities.
[OPTIONAL: Share a story about how Medicaid coverage has personally benefitted you.]
Thank you for your time.

2. DEMAND A FILIBUSTER-BY-AMENDMENT TO BLOCK TRUMPCARE

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling today because I’m upset at the GOP’s strategy to write and pass the American Health Care Act in secret, with no Senate hearings or public debate. I’m demanding that [SEN. NAME] urge their colleagues to hold hearings on this bill and stop bypassing our democratic process.
[OPTIONAL: Share a personal story of why the ACA is so important to you, your family, and / or your community]

3. URGE SENATORS PROTECT PEOPLE WITH PREEXISTING CONDITIONS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling today to urge Senator [SEN. NAME] not to vote for any healthcare bill that does not preserve the Affordable Care Act’s protections for people with preexisting conditions. The Senator should work to repair the Affordable Care Act, not replace it with an inferior bill that leaves millions uninsured and drives up costs for millions more.
[OPTIONAL: Share a story about why protections for people with preexisting conditions is important to you.]

4. DEMAND FULL TRANSPARENCY ON THE SENATE AHCA BILL

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling today because I’m appalled by the Republican attempts to pass the AHCA without any transparency what so ever. I ask that Senator [SEN. NAME] demand the immediate release of the plan’s details to the public and hold a hearing to thoroughly discuss a healthcare plan that affects one-sixth of our economy and the health and lives of millions of Americans. Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.

5. SAVE PATIENT PROTECTIONS FROM MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling to express my opposition to HR 1215, the Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017. Reducing healthcare spending is an admirable policy goal, but it should not be achieved by eroding people’s legal protections against medical malpractice while shielding pharmaceutical companies from lawsuits over hastily-approved drugs.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.
