Defend Healthcare The Repeal Obamacare movement has a deadline of September 30, after that it would take 60 votes. They will make every possible effort to get a bill through before the deadline. They are now pushing the Cassidy-Graham bill which is even worse than the bills which were previously defeated. Reports are that they already have 48 to 49 votes lines up, and that McCain is inclined to support this bill. This could be the one where we lose everything. The Administration is planning to slip it through while you are distracted, thinking about Harvey and Irma, Charlottesville and Pyongyang.
WHATEVER YOU DID TO DEFEAT THE PREVIOUS BILLS, DO IT AGAIN, DO IT NOW, TWICE AS HARD.
Call Senator McCain at (202) 224-2235 or (602) 952-2410 and beg him to protect our healthcare If you know anyone with a Republican Senator, prevail on them to call Or call them yourself And keep your eyes open for demonstrations or other actions as time runs short.
ps Cassidy-Graham includes defunding Planned Parenthood for one year.
