Save Our Health Care: Call Your Senator Today!

June 20, 2017

It’s National Call-In Day to Save Our Health Care: Call Your Senator Today!

Today is a national call-in day to save our health care as we know it.  Call your Senator today!

  1. Call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224‐3121.   If you can’t get through when you call, please keep trying. The switchboard is going to be extremely busy!
  2. Follow the prompts. Press “1” to indicate you want to speak with your Senator, then say your state and press “1”to indicate that the state is correct. Finally, press “1” to connect to your first Senator’s office.
  3. A staff person or machine will answer the phone. You can leave the message below.  Try to personalize the message if possible.  Hello, my name is (name).  I am a constituent of Senator (name) from (hometown).  I am calling to urge Senator NAME to vote against the American Health Care Act.  The bill would result in devasting cuts to Medicaid.  Medicaid is the only way most people can pay for long-term care, but these cuts would mean those in need of services and supports wouldn’t get them.  Please tell Senator NAME to say “NO” to Medicaid cuts and caps and protect the care of all those needing long-term care in NAME OF YOUR STATE and the country.
  4. Repeat to call your second Senator and leave the same message.

 

Your advocacy matters!
