Don’t be distracted by the ridiculous tweets.
House Republicans are planning to ram through an Obamacare/ACA repeal bill that will jeopardize health care coverage for 32 million Americans. They refuse to share a draft of the bill or any of its details for the public or even other Members of Congress (MoCs) to review. They are also rushing to approve the bill without releasing a formal cost estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
A vote on the bill in two key committees is planned for this week – House Ways & Means and Energy & Commerce Committees- without a cost estimate, and giving MoCs only a few hours to review the bill. Supporters of the bill want to get it through 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 Obamacare.

Step 1: Call your representative in the House – you can find their contact information in the link at the top right of our blog and below.
- Sample script: I oppose congressional action on any ACA repeal bill without a transparent process, including a Budget Office analysis. The American public deserves to know the effects of a bill of this magnitude. I want Congressman (name) to commit to a transparent process for any potential replacement bill. No transparency, No vote!
