Help Democrats Filibuster By Amendment

Call Script: Republicans are using a special process called “reconciliation” to jam through TrumpCare. This means they only need 50 votes, instead of the usual 60, to pass it. But the trade-off is that they have to allow an unlimited number of amendments. Any Senator can file as many amendments as they want and then call them up for a vote on the Senate floor during a period called “vote-a-rama.” Democratic Senators can and should plan thousands of amendments and keep them going until Republicans agree to have public hearings on the bill. By introducing tens of thousands of amendments, Democrats can slow down the process enough to draw necessary attention to Senate Republicans' secret process and the disastrous impacts of their TrumpCare bill. Ask your friends with Democratic senators to submit an amendment at [OurAmendments](http://ouramendments.org). (Text copied from [OurAmendments.org](OurAmendments.org))

Trumpcare Swing States

Call Script: TrumpCare bill (American Health Care Act, or AHCA) would strip coverage from at least 23 million people and cut Medicaid by $800 billion, in order to give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthy and corporations. It would also undermine critical protections for people with pre-existing conditions, defund Planned Parenthood, and raise premiums for American families. The next few weeks will be critical, and indications are that the fight will come down to key Senators in these 10 states.

Senators: John McCain of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine, Dan Sullivan of Alaska, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Jeff Flake of Arizona, John Boozman of Arkansas, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Dean Heller of Nevada, Shelley Capito of West Virginia, Rob Portman of Ohio, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania, and Tom Cotton of Arkansas
