Good morning, FAM, and happy Friday! As I’m sure you are already aware, the AHCA vote was delayed due to lack of support. (We’ll put aside for now the fact that many in the GOP don’t support it because they want to make it even more terrible; at least it is still hung up.) Keep calling Representative Bergman (202-225-4735) and other Republican reps to pressure them to vote no and to encourage them to resist Trump’s bullying.

But first, let’s call Senators Stabenow and Peters to thank Dems for fillibustering Gorsuch’s nomination, even if the effort ultimately proves to be futile. An administration under investigation for collusion with Russia should not be appointing justices to our Supreme Court.
Sen Stabenow: (202) 224-4822
Sen Peters: (202) 224-6221

Then, call Rep. Bergman (202-225-4735) once again to remind him that his constituents are not in favor of the ACHA. Here’s a new script that you can use, via Daily Action:

“Hello. My name is (NAME), I live in Michigan, and my zip code is (ZIP). I am calling to demand you vote against the GOP plan that replaces the ACA (Obamacare). You were not appointed by President Trump, you were elected by the people, millions of whom will be hurt by the American Health Care Act.

Show the people that you won’t be bullied by President Trump and prove that you are working for them, not against them.

Thank you.”

If you are feeling ambitious, you could also call these Republican reps:

  1. Justin Amash, (3rd District; Grand Rapids): 202-225-3831

  2. Fred Upton (6th District; Kalamazoo): 202-225-3761

  3. Dave Trott (11th District; Bloomfield Hills): 202-225-8171

  4. Tim Walberg (7th District; Monroe): 202-225-6276

  5. Mike Bishop (8th District; Rochester Hills): 202-225-4872

  6. Bill Huizenga (2nd District; Muskegon): 202-225-4401

  7. John Moolenaar (4th District; Midland): 202-225-3561

  8. Paul Mitchell (10th District; Shelby Township): 202-225-2106
