Call Your House Reps, Urge Them to Vote NO On the GOP Health Care Plan, and Urge Your Friends to Do the Same

Call your house reps, tell them to vote against the Republican health care plan, and badger your friends to call their house reps, too.

The House of Representatives will vote on the shambolic GOP health care plan Thursday. You’re probably aware that it has a lot of Republican opposition. Granted, that opposition largely from Republicans who think it’s too generous (boggle), but it could be enough to sink the damn thing.

Call, call, call, your house reps–JUST your house reps–and urge your friends to do the same if they haven’t yet. Specifically, you are asking your reps to vote NO on the GOP health care plan on Thursday (March 23).

Important! Is your house rep one of these nine Republicans?:

 

Mark Amodei, Nevada, District 2

Carlos Curbelo, Florida, District 26

Charlie Dent, Pennsylvania, District 15

Dan Donovan, New York, District 11

Brian Fitzpatrick, Pennsylvania, District 8

Peter King, New York, District 2

Tom MacArthur, New Jersey, District 3

Claudia Tenney, New York, District 22

David Valadao, California, District 24

 

…then it is extra-important that you call, because they are flippable.

Sample script: “I am (Firstname Lastname, from town, zip code). I am calling to ask House Rep (Lastname) to vote against the Republican health care plan on Thursday, March 23. It is not an improvement on Obamacare by any means. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) numbers show that if it was enacted, it would leave 24 million people uninsured by 2026, and would strip coverage from 14 million as soon as next year. We cannot approve something that would leave so many vulnerable people unprotected. Please vote no on Thursday. Thank you.
