We have one more chance this Independence Day to stop the GOP’s health care repeal before it sickens, bankrupts, and even kills many of us. Remember: grassroots pressure works.
We need to increase pressure on lawmakers to make sure they move to "no" on the health care repeal and stay there, despite GOP efforts to delay and buy their votes in backroom deals.
Colorado Senator Cory Gardner says the GOP "should be more open" about their plan to repeal health care. We agree. But Gardner's dismay doesn't take away his own responsibility to vote to defend health care in his state.
Senators Flake and McCain of Arizona, and Portman of Ohio have the power with their three votes to protect health care for more than half a million in their states, and millions more across the country. Will they listen to their voters?
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is playing political chicken with our lives. Since he and other Republicans are drafting their health care repeal in secret, it’s up to us to share the stories of those who will bear the consequences.
Republican leaders in the Senate are very quietly – and very secretly – forcing through a radical health care repeal that threatens the lives of people across the country. It’s up to us to make noise and demand our voices be heard.
Republican leaders in Congress are still gunning for our health care; their radical plans for our economy leave them no choice. During Resistance Recess, we'll let lawmakers know we'll keep fighting so everyone gets the care the need.
