Action 1: TONIGHT - Phone Bank to Stop Trumpcare 3.0 in Andersonville
The GOP is gaining momentum on a last-ditch effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act before the September 30 deadline with a new Senate bill. The Graham-Cassidy bill is strikingly similar to earlier Trumpcare bills. It still destroys Medicaid as we know it by fundamentally and permanently transforming the program into a per-capita cap. The bill also still undermines protections for people with pre-existing conditions and people who need treatment for opioid abuse by allowing states to waive essential health benefits. Learn more about this harmful bill.
Just as we did with Trumpcare 2.0, we will be phone banking to call constituents of red states and ask them to call their Senators. This is an amazing way for us blue staters to impact red states! Right now we have one phone banking session set for tonight, but check back here as we will be adding more and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for up to date alerts and phone bank from home option. Tonights phone banking session:
5301 N Clark Street, Chicago, IL
Action 2: URGENT - Call Senators to Withhold Consent on Trumpcare 3.0
We know our Senators will vote “no” on Graham-Cassady, but we must keep up the pressure on them to insist that the American public know about the negative, life-threatening consequences of this bill before it is brought to a vote.
Call Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC: 202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952
Script: Hi, my name is ______ and my zip code is _____. I'm a member of Indivisible Chicago. I'm calling to ask the Senator to withhold consent on the Graham-Cassidy Act. The GOP is trying to push through a bill that destroys Medicaid as we know it without a CBO score on the potential damage. Please do everything you can to slow down consideration of this dangerous bill so Americans can be informed of the life-threatening consequences.
Action 3: Sign Up for ACA Enrollment Reminder Thunderclap on 9/23
The 2018 ACA Open Enrollment dates are November 1 - December 15, 2017. Trump has not only shortened the window to enroll; he has also slashed the advertising budget by 90%. We may be spending the week trying to save the ACA (aagain!), but we still need to get the word out to people to sign up for 2018 coverage during the open enrollment dates.
Sign up for the Indivisible "Thunderclap" campaign, where a huge volume of tweets and Facebook posts will go out together on Saturday, September 23rd. The first campaign on 9/9 got over 2K supporters with a total audience of nearly 5.9 million people.
Please sign up and then share the link with your social media audience on Facebook and Twitter, and encourage others to do the same. It just takes a moment to do it, and it will have a huge impact on getting the word out about the open enrollment dates. Sign up here!
