Weekly Calls to Action May 8th – May 12th

1. Fight the Shameful Passage of the AHCA

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling today because I am outraged that House Republicans rammed through the American Health Care Act without a Congressional Budget Office review and without fixing the issues in the plan that would leave millions uninsured and drive up premiums for millions more. The majority of Americans want the Affordable Care Act to be repaired, not replaced, and this tone-deaf bill endangers the lives and economic stability of millions. [IF CALLING SENATOR, ADD: I urge [SEN. NAME] to vote against the AHCA and ensure the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid and protections for people with preexisting conditions remain in place.]

2. Demand that Representative Arrington support H.R. 305, which would force Trump to release his Tax Returns

I am a constituent of Rep. Arrington. I demand that he stop putting Trump before the truth and support a nonpartisan, independent investigation into Trump, Russia, and Trump’s conflicts of interest. To start, he can sign the discharge petition to get an up or down floor vote on H.R.305, which would force Trump to release his tax returns.

3. Governor Abbott just signed the racist and destructive SB4 into law. Let him know that you do not support SB4

My name is [NAME]. I’m a resident of [CITY] and have lived in Texas for over [#] years. I’m [undocumented/a DACA beneficiary/an immigrant/son or daughter or grandchild of immigrants, etc.] I have a message for Republicans, Governor Abbott, Dan Patrick and all elected officials who made the choice to terrorize millions of immigrants and undocumented people and to racially profile and intimidate people of color. Texas is our home, we’re here to stay and we will remember who terrorized our families! I do not support SB4, and I oppose the Governor signing that bill of hate. SB4 does not represent who we are as Texans.

5. Keep our Elections Fair and Free

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling today because I’m opposed to H.R.2090, the so-called Election Integrity Act of 2017. I ask that Rep. Jodey C. Arrington vote against this bill, and that they advocate for voting reforms that protect the security of our elections without discriminating against poor and minority voters. Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.
