HOW ACTION ALERT FROM BAZELON CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH LAW TO VOTE NO ON HEALTHCARE LEGISLATION THIS WEEK!! (1562 hits)


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM BAZELON CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH LAW!

C A L L I N G A L L A D V O C A T E S!

Capitol Hill Update - 6/26/17

Late last week, the Senate released their healthcare bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, or BCRA (bic-RA). This bill is as bad or worse than the House healthcare bill and, like that bill, harms the important healthcare programs and protections upon which people with disabilities rely. Despite only introducing this legislation a few days ago, the Senate plans to rush a vote on this bill on Thursday. As a result, we are urging everyone to participate in a People's Filibuster Week of Action:

1) If you have a Republican Senator or two, each day until the vote, call your senator/s and ask him/her/them to oppose the bill. We will provide a script each morning, detailing issues with a different part of the bill. We also ask that you report back on Twitter (@Bazelon Center) or via email (communications@bazelon.org) with what your senator's office said about the Senator's current position on the BCRA.

2) Whether or not you have any Republican Senators, think about all of your family and friends who live in states with Republican Senators. Call or email anyone you know in those states, and ask them to call their Senators. Share our fact sheets and our scripts. Each day, we'll send a reminder and a new script for you to use to when contacting Friends and Family.

3) In addition to these steps, there is more that you can do:

- You can write a letter to your local newspaper, asking your Senators to publicly oppose the bill. There are model letters to the editor available here.

- You can visit your Senator's office in person, by yourself or with some friends. Ask to meet with the healthcare staff or just drop off a letter including your address and your request that the Senator oppose the BCRA. A model letter is available here.

- You can tweet at your senator or write on his/her Facebook page. There are sample tweets and posts available here.

Today's Script!

For Calling Senators:

Call the main Capitol line at: (202) 224-3121. You'll be directed to an operator at the Capitol switchboard. This switchboard can direct you to both Senators as well as Representatives. You may be asked to leave a voice mail; you can use the same script to leave a message.
