Don't Let Them Get Away With It (UPDATED)

Today is the day the draft TrumpCare bill that 13 white male Senate Republicans have been crafting in secret, without hearings or expert counsel, will be revealed.  It will be the first time the public, as well as their Republican and Democratic colleagues, will see the tax- cut- for- the- rich- disguised- as- health- insurance- reform bill. The draft purportedly mirrors much of what's in the "mean" (quoting D.J. Trump) bill passed by the Republican sociopaths in the House in May, with fillips like an extended timeframe for the Medicaid expansion phase out to appease spineless Republicans like Sens. Susan Collins, Bill Cassidy and Dean Heller. We're confident that the bottom line, which will be confirmed once the Congressional Budget Office does its analysis, will be higher premiums and loss of coverage for millions, all to provide tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. In other words the perfect dystopian Republican "solution."

Meanwhile, we certainly hope you've had a chance to voice your opinion to your Senator (especially if he or she is a Republican).  It's never too late to make a difference.

The TrumpCare tool kit developed by the Center for American Progress makes it as quick and easy as possible. Now, there is anecdotal evidence that the anti- TrumpCare calls/ emails/ etc., are starting to build:

The next 10 days will be critical.  They think they can get away with passing this monstrosity before people catch on to the damage it will inflict. We need to do everything we can to make sure that doesn't happen.

Make them own this.

UPDATE:  You can read the "discussion draft" bill, embedded here.
