Phone Scripts for 9.18.17

Now that we are all experienced at fighting Trumpcare, and we know how to win, let's not let up! Graham and Cassidy are at it again pretending they have come up with a solution. This bill is not bi-partisan, it is a wolf in disguise -- and we are not out of the woods yet. We need to fight hard, and we need to fight now.  See the ‘explainer’ from Indivisible Guide to learn more about this bill.

KILL THE GRAHAM-CASSIDY BILL TO REVIVE TRUMPCARE

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible.

I’m calling to ask the [Senator] to withhold consent on all unanimous consent requests in order to ‘run out the clock’ and kill the Graham-Cassidy bill which, like previous Trumpcare attempts, would devastate healthcare in America. The bill is just like other TrumpCare bills in that it destroys Medicaid as we know it by turning Medicaid into a capped system. This hurts children with disabilities, seniors, and even victims of natural disasters like Harvey and Irma. It also takes away funding to help people afford health insurance through the marketplace, and it hurts states that have expanded Medicaid. This bill must not pass!

Will the Senator withhold consent on all unanimous consent requests to kill theGraham-Cassidy bill?

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE DREAM ACT

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible.

I’m calling to thank the [Senator/Representative] for their support of Senator Schumer and Representative Pelosi’s work to finally pass the DREAM Act and support the 800,000 Americans at risk. We must all stand united together and I applaud the [MoC]’s steadfast support of this effort.

STOP THE ADMINISTRATION SABOTAGE OF THE ACA

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible.

I’m calling to ask the [Senator/Representative] to demand that the Administration stop its sabotage of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”). The ACA has expanded health care coverage to millions of Americans, yet the Administration is undermining the Act by cutting nearly all of the funds for outreach and enrollment just as we’re heading into the enrollment period. The Administration has also refused to guarantee continued payment to insurers of Cost-Sharing Reduction subsidies (“CSRs”). Because of this uncertainty, insurers have or may soon either dramatically increase premiums or leave markets altogether. This will harm the care of Americans and is unacceptable.

Will the [MoC] demand that the Administration stop its sabotage of the ACA?

SHUT DOWN THE “ELECTION INTEGRITY” COMMISSION

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible.

I’m calling to ask the [Senator/Representative] to demand an investigation into whether the “Election Integrity” Commission is in violation of the Hatch Act, which prohibits officials from using government resources for political ends. The commission is a transparent partisan effort to disenfranchise voters by focusing on the illusion of “voter fraud”. It in fact is a threat to democracy, not an effort to protect it.

Will the [MoC] demand an investigation into whether the “Election Integrity” Commission is in violation of the Hatch Act?

Background:


REGULATE ONLINE POLITICAL ADVERTISING

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible.

I’m calling to ask the [Senator/Representative] to write or co-sponsor legislation to create transparency in online advertising. We now know that one of the ways Russia interfered with the 2016 election was by placing ads on Facebook. Foreign advertising in US elections is illegal, but due to the lack of regulation of online advertising, Russia was apparently able to do this with ease. This must be stopped for the sake of electoral integrity.

Will the [MoC] write or co-sponsor legislation to create transparency in online advertising?

CALL GOVERNOR BROWN
Governor's office: (916) 445-2841

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible.

Today, I am so proud to be a Californian as our state leads the resistance to fight the corrupt and racist policies of the Trump administration. Please sign Senator De León’s SB 54, the most far-reaching ‘sanctuary state’ bill in the country, as well as Senator McGuire’s SB 149, which bans candidates from appearing on California’s primary ballot if they do not provide a copy of his income tax returns to state elections officials.

Thank you!
