Today, Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker voted YES on a motion to proceed to debate a healthcare bill no one has seen. 
Their votes gave Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump a political win — and the Senate will now move forward on debate — no committee hearings, no idea what the bill is, no clear understanding of the impact on Tennessee. 
Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander sold us out so Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell could celebrate. 
Here’s what we do know: The plans under discussion will mean a loss of insurance for between 15 million and 32 million Americans. 
Hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans will lose access to coverage. 
Rural hospitals in our state will close. 
People will die. 
All so Trump and McConnell can say they won. 
Lamar and Bob voted yes so a President unworthy of the title and unfit to lead could claim a political victory. 
Lamar and Bob voted yes so Mitch McConnell could advance a partisan agenda that puts politics over people. 
How does that make you feel? 
YOUR Senators chose Trump and McConnell over the best interests of Tennesseans. 
It’s time to let them know. 
It’s time to turn up the volume. Lamar and Bob got it wrong. They need to hear about it.


Senator Alexander – (202) 224-4944
Senator Corker – (202) 224-3344
Then, join us for an emergency demonstration to let Bob and Lamar know they got it wrong! We’ll be at their Nashville offices tomorrow (July 26th) from 4:00 PM to 6:30 — let’s get loud so they can hear us in DC!
Bob and Lamar got it wrong. Don’t let them forget.
Thanks for standing up and speaking out!
