Phone Scripts for 9.25.17 - Persist: #KillTheBill

On Monday, Republicans will hold a hearing in the Senate Finance Committee that’s designed to legitimize the one-sided process to repeal the Affordable Care act. Even with a few Republicans indicating they will vote against his bill, Senator Sen. Lindsey Graham said the GOP would manage to round up the 50 votes necessary to pass Obamacare repeal. Unaccceptable!

To call out this sham process and put more pressure on Senators in these final days, we’re asking you to continue to call Senator Feinstein and Harris: thank them for their stance against the Graham-Cassidy bill, and urge them to their utmost to ensure this bill never comes to the floor.

Stand in solidarity with other Indivisible groups (and partners across the country) and call both OUR Senators so that they continue to do all they can, procedurally and persuasively, to #KilltheBill as soon as possible!

USE YOUR INFLUENCE TO KILL THE GRAHAM-CASSIDY BILL

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

I’m calling to ask Senator Feinstein to use her seniority and influence to counteract ALL efforts by the Republicans to push the Graham-Cassidy bill through this month. Not only do I ask her to withhold consent on all unanimous consent requests in order to ‘run out the clock’, Ialso ask her to use her seniority and influence to push her Republican colleagues to a “no” vote.

Will the Senator withhold consent on all unanimous consent requests to in order to kill Graham-Cassidy bill by process tactics, and will she also use her influence over her colleagues McCain, Murkowski, Capito, Portman, and Gardner?

This legislation, which is even worse than previous Republican “WealthCare” attempts, would devastate healthcare in America. People would die. This bill must not pass!  Thank you, I believe she can help to thwart this cruel bill.

USE YOUR PERSUASIVE GIFTS TO KILL THE GRAHAM-CASSIDY BILL

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

I thank the Senator for co-sponsoring Senator Sanders’ medicare for all act, and appreciate her call on Twitter “Don’t sleep on the Graham-Cassidy “health care” bill. It will defund Planned Parenthood & cost millions coverage. We need everyone shouting.”

Now I call on her to speak out on the floor --and to the press -- in opposition to this bill.  Not only do I want her to withhold consent on all unanimous consent requests in order to ‘run out the clock’, I ask her to use her gifts of persuasion to publicly encourage undecided Republican colleagues to vote no! In particular, she should immediately reach out to Senators McCain, Murkowski, Capito, Portman, Gardner and Capito.

I look forward to seeing a press release showing that Senator Harris has reached out to Republicans, and done everything she can to persuade her colleagues to kill this cruel bill.
