Defeating Trumpcare once and for all!

Defeating Trumpcare once and for all!

It hurts my heart to say this but I have to: The Senate Republicans who are dead set on taking healthcare away from millions of Americans might win. 

As Hurricane Maria is raging through the Atlantic, Republicans are staking a massive overhaul of our healthcare system in hopes we don't notice. They're counting on us to be too tired or distracted or overwhelmed to keep fighting and when we do - they'll push harder than ever before to secure their 50th vote. 

You need to prove to Republicans that we won't back down that we're still paying attention and that we won't let these monsters leave our communities overworked, underpaid, and sick.

If we stop fighting, millions of our most vulnerable Americans will be thrown into massive debt just to get the medications and treatment they need. We've put this thing to bed before, now it's time to kill it once and for all.

Tens of thousands of SumOfUs members have come forward and signed on to demand the GOP’s Health Care Bill be stopped. SumOfUs members across Maine and Alaska, took action and called Senator Susan Collins and Senator Lisa Murkowski telling them to hold strong against Trumpcare and they did.

Now it’s time to double down and make sure all Senators hear from the people they represent and don’t make the catastrophic decision to leave millions uninsured. We’re taking a stand together and letting our representatives know that they work for us, not just for billionaire CEOs.

Your voice has already made a difference in this fight.

Here is an example of how a conversation could start (or you can just wing it!):

    Hello, I’m [Your Name], I’m calling from [Your State], and I would like to speak to you about repealing the Affordable Care Act.

    There are lots of reasons you need to oppose it, here are just a few.

    1) Repealing the Affordable Care Act could leave up to 32 million Americans uninsured. I expect you to do everything in your power to stop the repeal of the ACA and to vote "no" on every version of the repeal bill.

    2) When Americans are healthy and have access to the medications and life-saving treatments they need, the economy benefits. 

    3) The U.S. is the only very developed economy without universal healthcare. We should be moving forward and providing life-saving services to all Americans, not backward.

    Thank you for your time. 


    • Be friendly and polite - the person picking up the phone will find it hard to ignore you if you are polite. 
    • Don’t feel like you have to answer any specific questions if you don’t feel comfortable.


      Do I have to be an expert on healthcare to call and express my concerns?

      No! Everyone has a story of healthcare. Our representatives care what you think. 

      What if I’m not connected? 

      The line may be busy - sorry about that. Please try calling again during office hours.
