[ACTION ALERT] Over the weekend, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) published their assessment of the American Health Care Act, the Republican replacement of Obamacare. If passed, 24 MILLION AMERICANS will lose coverage so that CEOs can benefit from corporate tax cuts. WE HAVE TO HOLD CONGRESS RESPONSIBLE! Take action today to fight the repeal of Obamacare:

1) Use the ACLU's email tool to customize and send a message to your representatives in the House and Senate.

2) Call your representatives. Even if they are Democrats, it is good to emphasize the importance of opposing an Obamacare repeal because they can cite the number of calls they've received. Use the following script adapted from the ACLU:

Chuck Schumer: (202) 224-6542
Kirsten Gillibrand: 202-224-4451

**When calling your senators, substitute "American Health Care Act" for "ACA repeal"**

Hello, my name is [NAME] and I am one of your constituents calling from [ADDRESS INCLUDING ZIPCODE]. I'm calling to urge [NAME] to oppose the American Health Care Act. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that 24 million Americans will lose coverage if the bill is passed. It targets women, people with disabilities, communities of color, low-income individuals and families, and anyone seeking reproductive health care. I expect you to vote against the AHCA and other reckless changes to our coverage.

3) Call New York Republican representatives using the following script:

Tom Reed, NY 23rd (in favor of the AHCA): (202) 225-3161
Dan Donovan, NY 11th (on the fence): 718-630-5277
John Faso, NY 19th (on the fence): (202) 225-5614
John Katko (on the fence): (202) 225-3701
