#159CalltoAction: Call Your Senators — Don't Let Up on the Pressure Against the Senate Health Care Bill
So, the deal-making begins in earnest this week. And, honestly, don't bet against Sen. Mitch McConnell just yet. He is a deal-maker.
Granted, there are now 10 GOP senators in opposition to the current Senate Health Care bill because of its effects on rural communities. And a few of of those senators are now saying a bipartisan measure is preferable.
And, do you all see the piece on Sen. Johnny Iskason in the AJC this weekend? So, shall we hit the phones early and often? Make those calls. Argue that the Senate bill will be devastating for Georgia's rural hospitals. That the cuts to Medicaid will put roughly 1 MILLION children in our fair state at risk. Let that number sink in. Then, make the calls.
- Sen. Johnny Isakson's number: (202) 224-3643/local office: (770) 661-0999
- Sen. David Perdue's number: (202) 224-3521/local office: (404) 865-0087
