Weekly Calls to Action and Update – March 7

Hello North Seattle Indivisibles! Here are our weekly calls to action!

Urgent: Oppose ACA Repeal

Weekly Actions and Update - March 7 | From Indivisible North Seattle
Oppose the ACA Repeal

Click Here to Take Action

House Republicans are planning to ram through an Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal bill that will jeopardize health care coverage millions of Americans. They shared a draft of their bill with only 40 hours for the public and even other Members of Congress (MoCs) to review. Republicans are also rushing to approve the bill without releasing a formal cost estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which analyzes how much federal legislation will cost or save American taxpayers—known as a “score” (see our CBO explainer for more information on scoring). Americans deserve an open and honest debate for more than two days about a bill that will cause millions of people to lose health insurance coverage.

Votes on the GOP plan in two key committees are planned for March 8 at 10:30am EST without a cost estimate. Supporters of the bill want to get it through the House before they head home for the next Recess (April 8-23). They do not want to face you at town halls and other events in their districts and have to answer questions about their plans for to replace the ACA. Call your representative in the House between now and Wednesday, March 8 and tell them to oppose any congressional action on the proposed ACA repeal bill without a transparent, thoughtful process, including a public CBO score. The American public deserves to know the effects of a bill of this magnitude.

And, if the bill does not preserve the core values of the ACA—like robust and affordable healthcare options for all Americans covered under the ACA—tell your representative to oppose repeal.

Join Our Constituent Led Town Hall

IMPORTANT: EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO SEATTLE UNITY CHURCH in order to accommodate larger audience! Please share this update to help get word out. Thank you!

Multiple Indivisible groups are joining forces to host a Constituent Organized Town Hall for Senator Patty Murray and Senator Maria Cantwell.

We are living in a much different world than we were just a short time ago. This time in history will be defined by those brave enough to stand up for what we know is right, no matter the costs. That goes for you, me, and our elected representatives. This time is too important for us not to have access to our Senators.

Currently, both Senators Murray and Cantwell do not have town halls scheduled in Washington State, where they can meet with and hear the concerns of their constituents. Indivisible Groups in Washington State are working together to provide the platform for our Senators to engage in meaningful dialogue with the people of their state — all they have to do is show up.
