Dear MoveOn member,
For weeks, key Republicans said that they wouldn't vote to move forward on the Senate version of Trumpcare.
And then, they caved.
Now, as you read this message, Senate Republicans are debating and voting on one horrible Trumpcare proposal after another. Proposals that would take away health insurance from as many as 32 million Americans, make health care unaffordable to all but the wealthiest in this country, and dismantle protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
Their goal is pass some version—any version—of their cruel bill. Health care is 1/6th of the U.S. economy and, for many Americans, what happens in the next 24 to 48 hours will mean the difference between life and death.
This is it. The moment of truth. The resistance needs to be louder, bigger, and stronger than ever before. Will you chip in $3 right now?
Right-wing Koch-funded groups have been pouring money into TV ads to pressure Republicans to get in line and support something to repeal Obamacare.
That's why Republican senators, including Mike Lee, Dean Heller, and Jerry Moran, who just days ago said that they were absolutely against moving forward melted under the pressure.
And unless the senators who voted to move Trumpcare forward feel a massive backlash from their constituents, they'll surrender to Trump and the Koch brothers yet again.
So here's the emergency plan that we're rolling out:
- Emergency alerts to activists with Republican senators. Over the next 24 hours, we will use advanced analytics and phone technology to empower volunteer teams to email, call, and send text messages to millions of folks who are represented by a Republican senator—and urge them to keep the phone lines of those Republicans ringing off the hook. We will also invite them to in-person rallies and events outside Senate offices.
- Emergency video production and online ads. We will produce rapid-response digital advertisements targeting vulnerable senators—like Republican Dean Heller of Nevada—and run online ads to make sure that their constituents know what's happening.
- Save Our Health Care rallies on Capitol Hill. We are rallying outside the Capitol to focus national media on the grassroots opposition to this bill.
- Door-to-door MoveOn canvasses in key states. We're knocking on doors and talking to voters in key states about where their senators stand on Trumpcare.
Here's the bottom line: If Republicans are able to get some version of Trumpcare through the Senate, it’ll likely be extremely difficult to stop it from becoming law. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment, with tens of thousands of lives—and quality of life for tens of millions more—in the balance.
Will you chip in $3 right now in this red-alert moment to stop Trumpcare?
Thanks for all you do.
