Keep the Fight Alive — and #KilltheBill
Our friends at Tennessee Justice Center have a few key words of encouragement as the fight to protect our health care and defeat TrumpCare heads into the final hours today.
Take action NOW! This is a fight we can and must win!
Here’s what Tennessee Justice Center has to say:
- In the last 24 hours, additions have been made to the AHCA that will be devastating for women, children, people with disabilities, and the one out of three Tennesseans who have pre-existing conditions. The 10 essential health benefits — which include maternity leave and mental health coverage — have been cut, which would mean that insurance companies could sell insurance plans that don’t cover what you need. Learn more on our website, where we will keep things up-to-date as the day progresses!
- We still don’t know if the House has enough votes to make this happen, so please: make a phone call to your House member right now, even if you already did it yesterday. We need them to be inundated. Call your House member by looking up their local number, or get connected with their DC number by calling 866-426-2631. Or, send them a fax by texting “resist” to 50409.
- If the House passes the bill tonight, we must pivot immediately to putting all of our efforts onto Senator Corker and Senator Alexander. Have you called them, met with them, written letters to them, and faxed them? They’ll be working on this over the weekend, so get your calls in now! Go to our take action page to choose what action you can do today, based on how much time you have.
What we do RIGHT NOW could determine the outcome on this healthcare legislation.
