Dear MoveOn member,
RED ALERT: According to media reports, Senate Republicans are planning to hold a pivotal Trumpcare vote tomorrow morning—a "motion to proceed" that will begin debate on a bill to yank away health care from tens of millions of people.1
If we lose, it'll give Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell huge momentum for the final vote.
Democrats are already united against this bill. But you can still take action to make a difference! Here are three things you can do:
- Call your Democratic Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten E. Gillibrand at 855-912-2982. Democrats are united against Trumpcare, but you should thank them for doing all they can to fight, and urge them to use every tactic at their disposal to slow and stop this bill. Ask them to join the filibuster-by-amendment (a way of slowing down the bill with a high number of amendments when the bill does come to a vote) and—this is crucial—to not vote for any amendments that will help Republicans pass Trumpcare.
- Urge your friends and family across America to call their senators at 855-912-2982. It's easy! Just click here to share our Facebook post on your wall and click here to tweet. You can also write personal notes to friends and family, especially those who live in Alaska, West Virginia, Ohio, Nevada, Maine, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Arkansas. Be sure to include the phone number they should call: 855-912-2982.
- Plan to get involved during the upcoming recess. Activists all over the country, including MoveOn members and MoveOn's Resistance Summer Mobilizers, are hosting events all over the country on issues from health care and calling for Medicare-for-all, to the environment, to immigration. Find one near you, or sign up to host an event here. And check back often for newly-added events, or add your own!
No matter what happens tomorrow, there will be much more for all of us to say and do—including those of us who are represented by Democratic senators!
We have stopped Trumpcare with intense grassroots pressure before, and we can do it again.
Thanks for all you do.
