Dear MoveOn member,
Trumpcare would rip away health care from 24 million Americans, gut Medicaid, and defund Planned Parenthood. And in just hours, the bill could pass the House of Representatives. Unless folks around the country FLOOD Republican representatives with phone calls.
Will you share this graphic on Facebook right now? By sharing, you can make sure that your friends and family who have Republican representatives find out what's happening—and FLOOD their lawmakers with phone calls.

Yesterday, Trumpcare was expected to pass the House of Representatives. But then, in a dramatic turn of events, Speaker Ryan couldn't get the votes and was forced to pull the bill at the last minute.
Now, Ryan and Donald Trump are demanding a vote TODAY (Friday).1
That's the bad news. The good news is: We've been here before. Our strategy is to delay the Trumpcare disaster until we ultimately derail it. So far, that strategy has paid off. Republicans originally planned to repeal Obamacare before Trump was even sworn in and send it to his desk on Day 1. Thanks to our persistence, it was delayed for two months.
Every additional delay is a victory. The longer we delay the vote, the more Americans oppose this Trumpcare scheme, the less likely it is to pass, and the harder it is for the rest of Trump's toxic agenda to become a reality.
But to succeed in killing Trumpcare for good, we've got to keep at it.
Please share this graphic on Facebook right now, so that your friends and family who have Republican representatives find out what's going on—and FLOOD GOP lawmakers with phone calls.
And then check MoveOn's Facebook page throughout the day for updates and more ways you can take action.
Thanks for all you do.

P.S. Want to do even more (or don't use Facebook)?
1. Call your senators, or send them a personal note via their websites. Tell them you are outraged by the House health care bill that would take away health care from 24 million Americans and gut Medicaid. Ask them to vote no and to make sure the bill is dead on arrival in the Senate. You can look up your senators' websites and phone numbers here.
2. Take 10 minutes to write to and call friends and family represented by Republicans, let them know the stakes are real and this could happen today, and persuade them to call their own members of Congress, who will feel pressure from their constituents.
