I was copying the names from an image.
This is actually life or death for thousands upon thousands of people. These republicon's phones have cooled off lately. They need to burn off the hook!
When you call, ask to speak to the health legislative assistant. Their names and phone numbers can be found here, along with more of Ben's tweets (click on the upper part of the image to get more information):
There was a huge push back with the house. This is being done behind closed doors. No Democrats are involved in it and won't know what is going on until it is on the table.
It has been pointed out that the likely changes will make health care unaffordable for many older people (55-65) who may put off care until they qualify for Medicare. That will make Medicare costs shoot up with all these sick people.
The changes will affect us all.
The new program is wildly unpopular. Need to explain what's happening to someone who perhaps is using the ACA or health care at all? This will help:
Here's the simplest takedown of the Republican scheme to take away health care from millions

p.s. I bristle when dems talk about this being mean to the poor (in some cases, pulling any medical care). This is going to affect us ALL. If you are doing well, your health insurance will change. The caps come back. Many other changes (see article above). For repubs who hate the poor, you are also shooting yourself in the foot (and will then have a pre-existing condition...).

Yeah, we need to pressure our senators. Call & let your opinion be heard. I've been told it's especially good to give a personal story if you have one or a story about someone you know.

We got a lot of thumbs ups & supporting honks. Occasionally people who drive by yell at us to get a job. Ha. We're mostly retired, stay-at-home moms and people with work schedules that aren't 9-5.
