All across Kentucky this week citizens are showing up to Senator Mitch McConnell’s district offices to ask for a copy of the Senate Health Care bill. We need your help in Louisville in showing up to resist Trumpcare.
The Senate is trying to do what the House of Representatives did in May: jam through its TrumpCare bill in secrecy, without public hearings, without a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score, and without knowing its full impact on American families.
The TrumpCare bill (American Health Care Act, or AHCA) would strip coverage from at least 23 million people and cut Medicaid by $800 billion, in order to give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthy and corporations. It would also undermine critical protections for people with pre-existing conditions, defund Planned Parenthood, and raise premiums for American families.
Action: Show up & ask for a copy of the Senate ACHA bill
Location: Senator McConnell’s Office, 601 West Broadway in Louisville
When you arrive at Senator McConnell’s office, ask to see a copy of the Senate version of the AHCA (Trumpcare). When they inevitably say they do not have a copy, be prepared to express your concerns over the damage the bill will do to the country. (Indivisible national has some great scripts you can use in person, available here.)

Be sure to post to your social media channels whether or not McConnell’s office provided you a copy of the bill, use the hashtag #Trumpcare, #ShowUsTheBill, and tag @IndivisibleTeam in your tweets!
