The Zombie Movie Called Health Care Repeal
Updated: September 20
It's Groundhog Day in September.
Yes, Obamacare is on the chopping block. Again.
This time, the Senate repeal bill is called the Graham-Cassidy, and it's pretty much what you remember about every other version of Trumpcare (as The Atlantic puts it, "fewer funds, fewer rules, and fewer people covered.")
How to help stop the repeal of the Affordable Care Act once and maybe even for all
Join tonight's Facebook Live chat with Indivisible and Families USA (Mon. Sept. 18 at 8:30pm ET) to discuss we we can do to kill the bill.
Reach out to just say hi again and tell your Senator to vote NO on the bill: 202.224.3121. Andrew Prokop at Vox thinks it will come down to Senators Susan Collins (ME), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), and John McCain (AZ), but every call to every Senator counts.
Or just go all the way and tell your Senator you support Medicare for All.
In the meantime, if you die for lack of health coverage, this website will conveniently mail your ashes to the members of Congress who voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
This is not a drill. Indivisible has launched the TrumpCareTen.org website with a calling tool and state-specific toolkits.
Must-watch and must-share TV: Jimmy Kimmel, whose son's medical condition has made him a health care activist, just went in on Sen. Cassidy, saying "he lied to my face."
