What to Say

Here are some talking points you should go over:
  • Don’t be afraid to tell your story. If health care reform has positively impacted your life, or if you’re worried about the consequences of repeal, let your senator know. Personal stories are one of the most effective ways to influence policy.
  • The American people have spoken loud and clear that we oppose repealing the Affordable Care Act. Americans don’t want Republicans to strip care from millions who’ve gotten it through the ACA. Trying to jam this bill through in less than 2 weeks is underhanded and a betrayal of why we elected you in the first place: to do what’s best for us, not what’s best for Mitch McConnell.
  • The ACA prevents discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions like asthma, heart disease, or diabetes. Without the ACA, insurance companies are free to refuse to cover treatments or charge patients more.

Some Tips

Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself, ask for the name of the person who handles health care policy, and share where you're from so your senator’s staff know that you're a constituent. (“Hi, this is Joe calling from Dayton, Ohio. Can I speak to the person in your office who handles health care policy?”)

Say why you’re calling & what you want to happen

State the reason you are calling and the specific action you want your senator to take — the Affordable Care Act saves lives and ask your senator to vote against repealing it.

Share

After your call, share how the call went on Facebook and Twitter and encourage your friends to reach out to their senator.
