13 Republicans Against Trump (Trumpcare)

Attention Aging Advocates,

Do you have family or friends in any of the following states:

Senators Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susan Collins (ME), Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), Cory Gardner (CO), Dean Heller (NV), Mike Lee (UT), John McCain (AZ), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Rob Portman (OH), and David Purdue (GA).

The above listed Senators have reservations about Trumpcare, and they need to hear from their constituents about keeping their hands off Medicare and Medicaid.

Please share the below request with anyone you know in the states listed above

Friends,

Remember: Nobody voted to cut Medicare or Medicaid. But Trumpcare has $880 million in cuts to Medicaid alone, and raids $117 billion from Medicare–cutting nearly $1 trillion from both programs that will be used for a massive tax break for the wealthy!

Earlier this week, we highlighted five Republican Senators who had expressed reservations about voting for Trumpcare. That list keeps growing. 13 Republican Senators are now on record with deep reservations about gutting the Affordable Care Act and enacting Trumpcare in its place.

Keep the pressure on! Sign the petition to these 13 Republican Senators and tell them to reject Trumpcare which would force 24 million people off of their healthcare in order to give a massive tax break to the wealthy.

Donald Trump ran for President on a promise that he would protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid from cuts, and that his healthcare plan would “take care of everybody.” Trumpcare does the opposite.

On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office (whose director was hand-picked by Speaker Paul Ryan), released its analysis showing that Trumpcare would cause 24 million people to lose health insurance in the next decade. And Republicans are starting to feel the heat!

Senator Bill Cassidy (LA) called the score “awful” and said, “That’s not what President Trump promised.”

Senator Tom Cotton (AK) said Trumpcare “would have adverse consequences for millions of Americans.”

And Senator Susan Collins (ME) called Trumpcare “dead on arrival” in the Senate.

We need three firm NO votes in the Senate to stop Trumpcare and stop Republicans from devastating the future of Medicare and Medicaid.

Stand with Social Security Works today and tell these 13 Republicans to reject Trumpcare.

The 13 Senators include:

Senators Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susan Collins (ME), Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), Cory Gardner (CO), Dean Heller (NV), Mike Lee (UT), John McCain (AZ), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Rob Portman (OH), and David Purdue (GA).

Together, we must stop Trumpcare, which will cut nearly $1 trillion from Medicare and Medicaid!

 

Thank you for standing with us,
