Why Today's Actions Are Important

Action #1: Attend rally downtown Chicago as the Signs 4 Sellouts 26' Mobile Billboard comes to Chicago

When Illinois GOP Congressmen Roskam, Hultgren, Kinzinger, Davis, Bost, LaHood and Shimkus cast their votes in favor of #TrumpCare, they voted to take away healthcare from tens of millions; gut protections for preexisting conditions; cut funding $880 billion from #Medicaid for children, the disabled, veterans and the sick to fund a massive tax break for corporations and the rich; and defund Planned Parenthood. Governor Rauner has remained silent in the face of this devastation for Illinois. In doing so, they attacked the very Illinoisans they swore to protect.

Come join us as the massive MOBILE BILLBOARD BUS ends its statewide tour in Chicago. Stand in Solidarity with the millions of Illinoisans who will lose coverage, with 42% of rural children, with the 1 in 2 births covered by Medicaid, with our fellow citizens dependent on Rural Hospitals that will close under the GOP plan. Please bring your stories and raise your voices, letting everyone know - including any present press - how this vote will affect you and your loved ones.

Illinois will never forget this vote— and we will continue to show up to hold them accountable. Our voices will be heard whether they hold town halls or not, and we will remember in 2018. The fight starts in Illinois, right now.

Action #2: Call Senators Durbin and Duckworth and thank them for fighting, encourage them to filibuster by amendment

Our calls are working! Senators Durbin and Duckworth's offices have indicated that they will withhold consent, as has Chuck Schumer, And last night, the Senate Democrats held the Senate, trying to force a debate. They are fighting back and it's due to our members and members of Indivisible in democratic states across the country strengthening their spines. 

Today we are continuing to push them, in this case we ask them to filibuster by amendment. Not sure what that's all about? Find all the info you need, plus scripts and numbers, at our Trumpcare page, along with scripts and your Senators' numbers. The Senators are beginning to fight because we have pushed them. They will continue to fight as long as we continue to call.
