You can save healthcare and the Supreme Court

Please log your calls at https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1 to let us know what our MoCs had to say.

ACTION 1: TrumpCare 2 - The sequel is even worse than the original!

Call your representative to let them know that the revised version of TrumpCare is still unacceptable.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal:

  • DC - 202-225-3106
  • Seattle - 206-674-0040

Rep. Adam Smith:

  • DC - 202-225-8901
  • Renton - 425-793-5180

Sample Script

"Hi, my name is {NAME}, I am calling from {CITY/TOWN}, and I would like the Representative to reject the amended version of Trumpcare."

Background

As Paul Ryan and the Republicans in the House have realized that their ACA repeal bill, unofficially named "TrumpCare", is doomed to failure, they’ve made changes to it to make it even MORE conservative. It makes even MORE cuts to Medicaid, allowing states to attach work requirements to their block grants and repeals taxes on the rich SOONER than the original bill. It doesn’t fix any of the problems of the original, though. It doesn’t do anything to help those 24 million people who would now be without insurance.

ACTION 2: Neil Gorsuch - he’s still no Merrick Garland

Call your senators to demand that they filibuster Neil Gorsuch's nomination.

Senator Patty Murray:

  • DC - 202-224-2621
  • Seattle - 206-553-5545

Senator Maria Cantwell:

  • DC - 202-224-3441
  • Seattle - 206-220-6400

Sample Script

"Hi, my name is ______, I am calling from {CITY/TOWN}, and I would like the Senator to pledge to filibuster Neil Gorsuch. The Republicans should not be allowed to fill this vacancy after refusing to give Merrick Garland a hearing."

Background

Hearings for the Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch have started, and should not be allowed to proceed. Though neither of our senators is on the Judiciary Committee, we need their votes to prevent this nomination from going through.

ACTION 3: Resist Trump Tuesday Rally. NEW TIME: NOW AT 11:45

Seattle Indivisible hosts the weekly Resist Trump Rally and meeting with our Senators' Seattle staff on Tuesday, March 21st at 11:45am at the Federal Building (915 2nd Avenue).

This week’s rally focus: Immigrant Rights and TrumpCare

We are pleased to have as our guest speaker, Ben Wiselogle. Ben is a founding board member of Americans for Refugees and Immigrants.

After rallying outside the Federal Building, we will go inside for a group give and take with Senators Murray and Cantwell's local staff. It's an opportunity to make our voices heard.

See you at the Federal Building!
