Monday's D3 Indivisible Daily Action
Demand Full Transparency in ACA Repeal Efforts
House Republicans are planning to ram through an Obamacare/ACA repeal bill that will jeopardize health care coverage for 32 million Americans. They refuse to share a draft of the bill or any of its details for the public or even other Members of Congress (MoCs) to review. They are also rushing to approve the bill without releasing a formal cost estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which analyzes how much federal legislation will cost or save American taxpayers—known as a “score.” Americans deserve an open and honest debate about a bill that will affect 32 million people.
A vote on the bill in two key committees is planned for this week, without a cost estimate, and giving MOCs only a few hours to review the bill. Supporters of the bill want to get it through before they head home for the next Recess (April 8-23). They do not want to face you at town halls and other events in their districts and have to answer questions about their plans for Obamacare. Call Representative Scott Tipton between now and Thursday, March 9 and oppose any congressional action on any ACA repeal bill without a transparent process, including a public CBO score. If you intend to participate in Tipton's Town Hall tomorrow, start formulating questions about how we can possibly support a plan that no one has seen.
The American public deserves to know the effects of a bill of this magnitude.
