4 Days to Defeat the Better Care Reconciliation Act

from https://www.indivisibleguide.com

Indivisible is leading a national charge fighting against our President’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA) this week. Republicans are planning a vote on Thursday, June 29, 2017, but Republicans still don’t have the votes. This truly could go either way. This is the moment constituent power was made for. This is the time to stand up.

It’s important to support our two Democratic California senators (Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris) and ask them to continue to resist by withholding consent on senate business. Tell them to object! Also ask our Democratic senators to try to bury BCRA in amendments. You can submit an amendment by visiting OurAmendments.Org.

Make sure you also check out three new Indivisible explainers to combat the most common talking points we’re seeing from Republican Senators (because facts matter):

  1. The Senate Bill Fails People with Pre-Existing Conditions
  2. The Senate Version of BCRA = Higher Costs for Consumers
  3. The Senate Version of BCRA Destroys Medicaid As We Know It

If you don’t live in California, but you happen to live in one of the 10 critical states (AK, AR, AZ, CO, LA, ME, NV, OH, PA, or WV) use Indivisible’s  daily call scripts to call your senators and email their staff. Visit TrumpCareTen.Org for more info.

    The Congressional Budget Office has released its analysis of the GOP’s health care plan. Here’s what we’ve just learned:

    22 million more people would be uninsured over the next decade with nearly 50 million uninsured overall by 2026, thanks to Medicaid cuts;

    The average premium for a standard health care plan will increase by 20% next year for millions of Americans;

    And this plan to kick millions of people off their health insurance is all so the Republicans can provide wealthy donors with a tax cut. It’s downright immoral.
