Hi Waypointers - this is a Call To Action for folks in the USA. I looked through the rules and didn’t find a specific rule against calls to action, and given the outspoken political statements of the Waypoint staff, I hope this is okay. Please let me know if it is not. The lives of friends of mine are on the line here, and the ability for me to be able to make a living as a freelancer/writer in the future.
The latest reporting says that Paul Ryan has or is very close to having the votes to approve the American Health Care Act (AHCA). This is a bill that three versions ago would deprive 24 million people of health care. Each version since that first failed version has gotten worse for Americans.
Congresspeople are listening to constituent comments on this, so every call helps, especially if your congressperson is Republican.
Please call your Congressperson. Even if you’ve never called them before. Even if you don’t like ACA (this bill under discussion is ACA but worse and more likely to crash insurance markets, which then makes everything even worse).
If you need a script or someone to help you through the process, I will do that thing.
This # will help you connect to your Congressperson: (202) 224-3121.
Every call matters. We can still stop this. Thanks.
