Fight the GOP “healthcare” bill. Make no mistake, the AHCA is a tax relief for the wealthy bill, not a healthcare bill. It cuts $1.2 trillion from healthcare spending and gives that as tax relief mainly to the wealthy. The images of people with disabilities being pulled from their chairs by Capitol police while protesting the bill outside Mitch McConnell’s office on Thursday is a metaphor for the cruelty of this legislation. The very lives of many people with disabilities depend on a strong Medicaid program, which the AHCA would gut. Call Senators Kaine (202-224-4024 or 804-771-2221) and Warner (202-224-2023 or 804-775-2314) to thank them for fighting against this bill and ask them to use all options, including submitting amendments (see Action 2), to stall the vote.
Call the more moderate GOP senators and try to persuade them to vote no:
Lisa Murkowski AK 202-224-6665
Susan Collins ME 202-224-2523
Shelley Capito WV 202-224-6472
Rob Portman OH 202-224-3353
