TIME TO MAKE THE CALLS
Take a moment today to confront your Senators (202-224-3121) with the truth. The truth is that health care is a life and death issue demanding the highest level of attention, hard work, and empathy.
Call your Republican senators, after reminding them of that, ask the following:
- How much time are you willing to give the full Senate and your constituents to read and analyze the bill before you vote for it? Will you commit to one week?
- Why are you going along with Mitch McConnell and not holding public hearings on healthcare?
- How many human beings are you willing to throw off their healthcare coverage? 23 million like the House?
For your Democratic Senators the message is simpler: it is time to break some glass. Tell them they should feel empowered to do everything they can to stop this health care bill in its tracks. Some of them think the ideal is for the GOP pass the healthcare bill because it will be so bad that they will get booted out office — but real people’s lives are stake! Tell them to protect our lives using every tool at their disposal.
