Action 1: Convince Senator Portman of Ohio to Oppose the New Trumpcare Bill!  

We’re continuing our healthcare marathon, focusing on one Republican Senator every day.  Today we’re calling Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, who has not committed to voting either way.  The senator has released this statement in response to the current healthcare bill: “My goal is to create a more workable system that lowers cost of coverage, provides access to quality care, & protects the most vulnerable.”  Let’s ask Senator Portman to remain true to his values and help give him the courage to withstand pressure from his party and particularly, Senator McConnell.  Call the Senator yourself and use this link to find friends in Ohio you can urge to call as well https://www.facebook.com/search/people/?q=friends%20in%20ohio.

Senator Rob Portman

DC - 202-224-3353

Cleveland - 216-522-7095

Script:

“I’m calling to ask Senator Portman to hold true to his intent to protect the most vulnerable of his constituents. CEO’s of five large Medicaid providers in Ohio have said the BCRA will end coverage for 700,000 Ohioans. I urge the Senator to think about the wellbeing of his constituents over party pressures and vote “no” on this inhumane bill.’

Action 2: Ask Our Own Senators to Keep Fighting for Access to Healthcare!

Senators Murray and Cantwell have asked us to keep calling in support of access to affordable healthcare. They use the number of calls they receive as evidence that public opinion is against Trumpcare. Even if you already called, call again today to thank them and urge them to use all possible means to oppose the bill. We want to keep their call tallies - and their spirits - up.  Let them know that their constituents appreciate all their hard work.
