It doesn’t matter if the crime occurs in a “health-care” bill or a “tax” bill.

Once again, the GOP is trying to kill the ACA by removing the mandate.

What they’re actually doing is killing Americans.

Removing access to health insurance for 13,000,000 Americans will cause people to die unnecessarily in a country which is touted as having the “best health care in the world”.

If the mere transfer of money from the poor and middle-class to the wealthiest of our society is corrupt and immoral, then the actual killing of us is should be described as criminal.

Ask for what we want! Every day. Over and over.

Minimal Script for a Democratic Legislator: 

I’m calling from [zip code] and I want to thank Senator [Harris/Feinstein] for opposing the Senate GOP tax bill.

We never asked for a tax cut. Are you ready to write things down?

What we want is accessible, comprehensive and affordable health care, protection of our social safety nets like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, investment in our schools and public infrastructure, affordable higher education for all, and protection of our air, water and natural resources. (Add on anything thing else we missed!)

Please tell your boss that if he/she/they  [___] vote for this fraudulent rich-get-richer scheme over our best interests, he/she/they will need a career backup plan after the next election.
