Good morning FAM! Today, your task is to call Representative Bergman one more time and voice your opposition to the American Health Care Act, a.k.a Trumpcare, the GOP plan to repeal and replace the ACA. The bill goes to a vote today. You can remind him that even governor Snyder opposes the repeal plan. Here is a script you can use, via Michigan Resistance:
“Hi, I am calling to ask Representative Bergman to OPPOSE the American Health Care Act. It is not fair that my family and neighbors will see our prices increase while the wealthiest Americans will gets thousands in tax rebates.
Our older family members will see prices rise, and hospitals will see job losses with the decrease in care coverage. The damage to the economy and my family’s pocketbook is troubling. I am asking that you vote AGAINST
this bill. We need Americans to have health care and for everyone to pay their fair share.”
I called his DC office this morning, and got an answer on the first ring: 202-225-4735. You can also try to reach his Traverse City or Marquette offices (231-944-7633; 906-273-2227) Make sure to thank the staffer who picks up the phone for their hard work. They are getting a lot of calls today!
