There are only two weeks left for the Senate Republicans to steal healthcare from tens of millions so that they can give a tax break to the rich. Don't let it happen. We know it's Sunday, but let them come back to a mailbox full of demands for obstruction.

Background:

Like all of Trump and the Republicans' efforts, this bill is a massive cut in our healthcare budget, on the backs of the most vulnerable. The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities estimates that by 2026, the state of Washington will lose 3.3 BILLION dollars in federal funding.
