Hearings on McMahon, Mulvaney, Price.

This is a good primer. 

Here are some scripts.

Call your representative in the HOUSE and tell them to vote No on HR 7 aka the Hyde Amendment.

You would think, in the wake of Saturday’s monumental Women’s March that Congress might show some respect for women’s rights. You’d be wrong. Instead, on Tuesday, January 24th, the House has scheduled a vote on HR 7. This unnecessary and intrusive legislation meddles with the private insurance marketplace and attacks women’s reproductive rights. It’s not the first time Republicans have tried to pass this anti-woman bill.

Keep the Pressure On: Tell Congress to #ProtectOurCare.

One of President Trump’s first acts in office was to sign an Executive Order that could threaten essential components of the Affordable Care Act. But to dismantle the ACA, Trump will need to get repeal legislation through Congress. Keep the pressure on your members of Congress! Tell your Representative and two Senators that you won’t stand by and let 30+ million people lose their healthcare — and that you expect that they won’t either.

  1. The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions will be voting on the confirmation of Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary on the morning of Tuesday, 1/31. She’s one of the most reprehensible of Trump’s Cabinet picks so I hope you’ll add this to your calendar of action items.
