I hope everyone had an exciting or relaxing 4th of July, depending on what you were trying to achieve. Sorry for the delay in calls to action this week. We partied a little too hard here and needed an extra day to recover. 🍸🇺🇸 🎆
An awesome group of 6th District Indivisible folks went to join the Tuesdays with Tillis group who are advocating for expanded healthcare for everyone. Thanks to 6th District Indivisible, for your hard work. Pictures here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/IndivisibleNC6th/permalink/1355095034568806/
Call your Senators again today and tell them that the Senate “healthcare” bill (BCRA) is unacceptable. Pick a provision in the bill to talk about. There are so many:
- Slashing Medicaid
- Elimination of the mandate
- Some conditions may not be covered, which is no different than denial for preexisting condition
- Older people can be charged 5 times more than younger people
- States can decide what qualifies as an essential health benefits
- Ban on caps doesn’t change, but state can opt out
- Pregnant women ineligible for Medicaid
- Ends requirement for insurance to cover birth control
SCRIPT: Hi, I’m calling from __________, NC. I want to urge the Senator to vote NO on the BCRA recently put forward by the Senate. This bill is badly thought-out and plainly cruel. [Insert your choice of provisions from the bill]. Can you tell me how the Senator plans to vote on the bill so that I will know how to vote when the Senator comes up for reelection? Thank you for your time.
If you have friends who live in any of the above states, tell them they need to call their senators and urge them to vote NO on the BCRA “healthcare” bill.
This woman’s name appears on the Declaration of Independence. So why don’t we know her story? – If you’ve never noticed it or heard of her, you aren’t alone. She’s a Founding Mother, of sorts, yet few folks know about her. And some of America’s earliest bureaucrats did their best to shut her down. Same old, same old.
I had no idea.
