This woman who attributes her survivor to Planned Parenthood after she was diagnosed with cancer asked a Republican a CRUCIAL question

On Thursday night, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz held a town hall near Salt Lake City, Utah — and judging by the audience’s jeers, it doesn’t seem like it went over well. Women came out in droves to ask the hard and necessary questions about Republican plans to save their healthcare.

Tell Republicans who voted for the AHCA: We’ll remember

Republicans just passed a health care law that would take health insurance from 24 million people, raise costs on seniors, poor people and sick people, and give the super wealthy an enormous tax break.

We can still stop it in the Senate. But before you call your Senators, if you had a Republican rep who voted for this monstrosity, take a few minutes and call them. Yell at them for voting for a bill without even waiting for a CBO score to show how many of their constituents it would impact and without any debate. Let them know that you’ll remember this in 2018. Republicans in the Senate - and the House, when it comes back for reconciliation - will be watching to see what kind of fallout this vote causes. Make sure they feel it.

Script: “Hi, I’m [your name] and I’m a constituent from [your town.] I’m calling to say that I’m furious that Representative So and So voted for the American Health Care Act without even waiting for a CBO score to find out how people in [his or her] district would be impacted. This is going to effect millions of people’s health and it’s absolutely shameful that Rep. So-and-so voted to force it through with no debate or hearings. I’ll be voting against Rep. So-and-so in November for this vote and I’m going to encourage my friends and neighbors to do the same.”
