Sample Scripts – Health Care

Hi, my name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [City, Zip Code]. I’m calling to ask Senator/Representative [______] to oppose the American Health Care Act, or “Trump Care.” The CBO released it’s score saying that 14 million people will lose health insurance by 2018 and there will be 24 million people uninsured by 2026. Tax credits are proposed to replace subsidies based on age instead of income. Nothing in this bill helps low-income, sick, or elderly Americans who need health insurance. This is an unacceptable replacement for the ACA. Please tell Senator/Representative [______] to oppose this bill. Thank you for your time.

Tax Credits

Hi, my name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [City, Zip Code]. I’m calling to express my opposition to the American Health Care Act and the proposal to replace Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act with a tax credit system. This tax credit system will disproportionately benefit the wealthy while leaving lower income people unable to afford healthcare. Please ask Senator/Representative [_____] to oppose this bill. Thank you for your time.


Sample Script – Medicare for All 

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from {city, zip code]. I’m calling to urge Representative [Labrador/Simpson] to support HR 676, which would expand Medicare to all Americans. The bill would save billions of dollars while giving every American the chance to get the care they need and live healthy, productive lives. Thank you for your time.
