The Senate GOP’s plan is to pass this bill FAST—by June 30. Enough time to fight, no time to spare.

Here are the steps

  • GOP is writing the bill now, in close touch with CBO. Their goal: send it to CBO for official score between now and Tue, unseen by public
  • In other words, negotiations are nearly wrapped up on what’s actually in their bill. What’s leaking out is awful. But the bill is secret.
  • They get it back from the CBO with official score ~2 weeks later—& fast-track it to Senate passage w/privileged status, ie no filibuster.
  • The week of June 26, the score will come out, the bill will be made public, the public will scream, and they’ll grit teeth & pass it
  • NO hearings w/ experts & affected witnesses, NO committee markups, NO consultation with Dems, NO town halls or public forums—undemocratic

Here’s how we meet this moment and kill TrumpCare.

  1. CALL EVRY DAY. The number to call Congress is 202-224-3121. Save the 202-224-3121 in your phone as a contact. Put it as a favorite. Say “Hey Siri, remind me to call Congress at 10am on weekdays.”
  1. RECRUIT CALLERS. Type “Friends in Tennessee” into Facebook. You’ll get a list. Ask ’em to call Sen. Alexander. Your friends in TN WV LA ME TN AR AZ CO SC NV AK & OH miss you! Don’t neglect them! Get in touch & ask ’em to call Congress re Trumpcare. Remind them  I reminded mine today already

When you call a Senate office, ask to speak to the relevant Health Legislative Assistant. Here is a link to all of the Health Legislative assistants.

3. EMAILING the legislative assistants w/personal notes. Here’s how to figure out Hill staff email addresses  If I, Ben Wikler, worked for Sen. Murkowski, (I don’t; Chelsea Holt is her health LA), I’d be ben.wikler@murkowski.senate.gov.

BUT MOST IMPORTANT, CALL YOUR SENATORS EVERY DAY YOURSELF.  Tweets are really helpful but calls mean more.  

NEW FEATURE: Suggested Resistbot letter to senators located after the tweets.  Take a look.  Copy, paste, adapt, edit it.  Use it how you want but use it.  Text RESIST to 50409.

 

Here you go for today.  There are a lot so take regular breaks. bots

BOTS are out and I don’t want you to get jailed so you cant help #TheResistance.

I am well aware that the Senate Republicans are secretly preparing your version of the AHCA.

I also know that you are doing so without any external expert advice, without any discussion with your Democratic colleagues or with any opportunity for the American people to comment on or influence your bill.

This course of action is anti-democratic unamerican, highly partisan and very irresponsible.

Please know I will not be confused by this ‘ruse’, and that I will know very well who to hold responsible for the results.

Neither will other (insert your state here).

It is not too late to back away from this unamerican course of action.

I urge you – for your own political future and the sake of the people you represent- to reconsider.
