Trump is threatening them if they vote against the bill, if you’re their constituent (or know someone who lives in their states), call them and make sure these reps know they answer to the American people and not to Trump.

Vote will take place on Thursday, March 23 - tell them to vote no on AHCA aka Trumpcare.

Wondering what a call to your elected official actually sounds like? We got you.

If you’re on this website (or a human alive today) there’s a really good chance you’re afraid to call your Congressional Representative because you don’t know how the phone call will go. We’re trying to remove some of the mystery around calling elected officials to show you a few different examples of first time callers leaving a comment with a government official. It’s so easy!

In this call we see Lyric calling her Congressman, Brad Sherman, about Steve Bannon. Unfortunately, sometimes it can be confusing at first figuring out exactly who to call. As Lyric learned, you have to be especially careful that you’re calling somebody from the United States Congress, not your state’s Congress (unless you’re calling about a local issue). But don’t worry, this problem is easy to solve. If you have this post in front of you, you can shortcut the lookup process by using this handy website

If you don’t have this post in front of you, just google who your congressional representatives are, making sure you get the answer from a federal and not state website:

To find out who represents you in the Senate, just google “[your state] Senator.” Make sure you’ve found US Congress Senators, not state Senators. Google should also autopopulate with your state’s two Senators if you use that search query. There will be only two, no matter what. You can call either or both of them.To find who represents you in the House, google “Who is my representative.” The first google result should be a house.gov website that prompts you for your zip code. Enter it in and you’re good to go. You will only have one Congressional Representative no matter what. Once you get the name of your congressperson, google “[your representative] phone number” to get the phone number you need.

Without individual and employer mandate, GOPcare won’t be able to deliver on popular obamacare provisions even if they keep it, like coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and no lifetime caps.

GOPcare is basically a massive tax break for the rich and insurance companies and low quality healthcare for everyone else, if you can afford it.

What’s also not being discussed or detailed is how it affects other important but not well known obamacare provisions, like for coal miners, for mental healthcare, opiod addiction, women’s healthcare, etc.

What’s more, their bill is designed around elections to let them get through 2018 and push all other issues to 2020, during the next presidential elections. All they care about is maintaining power, not American people.

Call your reps, don’t let it even go pass the house into the senate.
Just a random thing that I found interesting while doing research -- over 12,000 Americans have served in Congress since 1789 but, apparently, nobody whose last name started with the letter “X” has ever served in either chamber of Congress (House or Senate) in American history.

Remove health-care subsidies for Members of Congress and their families
Several years ago, my dad got the news that he had cancer. Sadly, he passed away. My dad had a job at the time, but his employer did not cover him, and without coverage, he avoided going to the doctor until it was too late. As Congress and President Trump try to pass a new healthcare law, I'm reminded...


More than 519,000 signatures…so far.

The Republican Health Care Plan is right for health insurance companies and wrong for America.

Under the plan, health insurance companies will not be required to cover your lab services, your emergency room, your pregnancy, your preventive medicine, your mental health care, your prescriptions, or even children’s healthcare after 2019. This plan is awful!

Call your Congress Member and tell them to reject this plan!

Script:
Script: Hi, my name is [name] and I am calling to ask Senator/Representative [name] to oppose the newly release ACA repeal plan. This bill would lead to millions losing coverage and those with coverage paying more for less comprehensive coverage. It will also hurt millions of poor Americans. Thank you.
