By Friday: Amend Trumpcare. Well, not really. The Republicans won’t actually adopt them. But, each one takes a few minutes to read into the Senate record. So, Senate Dems are collecting as many as they can to try to slow the bill’s passage until after the July 4th resource so Senators have to go home and face their constituents. Submit amendments here.
Actions for What Can We Do Now
By Sunday: Help Ossoff. Ossoff’s campaign is recruiting multilingual volunteers who can help make phone calls or provide election support in a number of languages to the District’s growing Asian and Pacific Islander community. Check the list and offer to help if you can.
By Sunday: Healthcare. So, Republicans haven’t held any hearings on their health care disaster yet. E-mail HealthReform@finance.senate.gov and ask the Senate to hold open hearings, like the 44 the Democrats did for the ACA.
1. By tomorrow: Phone bank for Rob Quist in the May 25th Montana special election.

3. By Sunday: Tell the Department of Education America should keep its promise of student loan forgiveness for public servants.
Republicans may have dealt a blow to Obamacare this week, but the battle’s far from over. We’re deviating from our usual format this week for a special edition on healthcare.
