Whether or not 32 million Americans lose healthcare through the ACA (Obamacare) or get to keep it now depends on one vote : Lisa Murkowski’s. Senator John McCain has stated he “cannot in good conscience vote for this bill,” in spite of the fact he is friends with Lindsey Graham, one of the authors of the Graham-Cassidy bill. He has proved to me he is a man of integrity by his refusal to cave to politics over people.
But, as you probably know, Murkowski is being bribed by the GOP and Mitch McConnell. They told her if she voted yes on the bill, that HER state of Alaska would get to keep Obamacare (which means they know it works better than their plan).
While I think Murkowski has a conscience and won’t fall prey to their bribery and will do the right thing, I’m not sure of this. She hasn’t stated how she will vote.
So we all need to CALL HER OFFICE AND TELL HER TO VOTE NO ON GRAHAM CASSIDY! Make sure you thank her for voting no the last time and remind her that she did the right thing by doing that.
You can call her at 202-224-6665. WE NEED HER NO VOTE!
The GOP is at it again. Like Michael Myers, it just keeps rising from the dead.
Yes, they’re trying to ram through a new version of Trumpcare — and this one’s even crueler than the previous two — an estimated 32 million people would lose healthcare. Insurers would be allowed to refuse to insure you for pre-existing conditions (a previous pregnancy would be considered a pre-existing condition, meaning most women would be affected). Like the first bill, premiums would go up exponentially for older people. It also eliminates the Medicaid expansion. And Planned Parenthood. It discriminates against women, especially older women like myself who are not old enough for Medicare. It punishes the poor and middle class. If you’re not wealthy and develop a serious illness like cancer, it will be your death sentence.
This is the worst bill yet, and they are very close to passing it. All so Trump can have his WIN and they can get their tax breaks. At our expense. They are relentless. They must be stopped.
They have until September 30th to pass it, but if it passes, the ACA (Obamacare) will be gone forever. If they lose, the ACA stays indefinitely (until something better, like single payer, comes along).
I HATE that we have to beg our own government not to kill us, but unfortunately this is what we must do. Jam the phone lines! Please! It’s literally a matter of life and death for millions of people.
We need all hands on deck over the next few days. Call your reps & tell them to vote NO on the Graham-Cassidy bill: (202) 224–3121.
