Tomorrow or Thursday will be a crucial day for the future of American health care. The Senate is preparing to vote on the Republican health care bill to repeal Obamacare, and although there are no details on what the legislation will entail, it is poised to be one of the most harmful pieces of legislation for American families ever.
If it passes, the bill will go back to the House for changes, but the Senate is setting a dangerous precedent by voting on a bill that will make millions of Americans lose their access to the healthcare they deserve. Not to mention, those with pre-existing conditions will be hamstrung, deductibles and copays will sky rocket, the rich get richer, and the middle-class will be stuck with the bill.
What you can do now:
Democrats are united against TrumpCare, but several Republican senators are on the fence.
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) (202) 224-6665
Jeff Flake (R-AZ) (202) 224-4521

Hi, my name is _______ and I'm a constituent of Senator ___________. I'm calling to express my concern about the new healthcare bill. [Short personal anecdote about your health care experience/concern if applicable]. According to the Congressional Budget Office, TrumpCare will result in millions of Americans losing their healthcare, paying higher premiums, and receiving worse coverage. It also gives a major tax cut to the wealthiest Americans as well as insurance and drug companies. This is unacceptable. Will the representative oppose this legislation?
