Keep speaking out on health care.  Now is the time.  Senators are using this week’s recess to gauge your needs.  Call them TODAY.

The Senate is in the midst of holding closed-door meetings to draft their version of Trumpcare, and all signs are pointing to it being just as bad as the House version. Let Senator Cory Gardner & Senator Michael Bennet know you’re watching.

Script: Hi. I’m from _ZIP_ calling about healthcare. I would like _NAME_ to fight for my right to affordable, quality healthcare coverage. Specifically, (list what you want). Ideas:
1. No gender discrimination.
2. No lifetime caps.
3. To cover all pre-existing conditions.
4. To cost less than $X per month per person.
5. Comprehensive Medicare and Medicaid.
6. Start pressuring health insurance companies to decrease costs.
7. Then share a story about why one of these is important to you, personally. Thanks!

Last month, members of the House rubber-stamped this administration's irresponsible Obamacare repeal plan, which, according to the Congressional Budget Office, would cover 23 million fewer Americans. Members of Congress are putting their own constituents' lives at risk, and it's unacceptable.

The bill is now in the Senate—and senators are meeting behind closed doors to draft their own version of it. It's crucial that we make our voices heard on the disastrous impact that repealing Obamacare would have. Get in touch with your senator now.
