#KillTheBill on Tuesday July 18th 11:30 AM – 1PM
In Springfield Missouri
Protest in front of Senator Blunt’s office from 11:30 Am till 1 PM on Tuesday July 18th 2017. 2740 E. Sunshine St. Springfield, MO 65804
Bring Signs and Print out photos and stories to represent people who would be hurt by TrumpCare to bring with you. By now, our Senators should have heard many stories from constituents who would be impacted by their vote. This day is a way to remind them of those stories, and show them again that TrumpCare impacts everyone. We’ll deliver the photos and stories to Senator Blunt’s staff to make sure that our message is heard.
Lives are on the line for some of Missouri’s most vulnerable because of this disastrous bill. Stand with us on Tuesday to let Senator Blunt and his colleagues know that putting politics before people’s healthcare and lives is wrong and to vote NO on Trumpcare!
For months, Indivisible groups have been showing up at congressional offices around the country to say no to TrumpCare. On Tuesday July 18, our whole national network will be showing up together to say that TrumpCare would hurt our friends, our families and our country—and we’re not letting that happen without a fight.
NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION ON TUESDAY JULY 18
We are encouraging Indivisible groups to plan visits to as many of their Senators’ in-state offices as they can around the state. Statewide will be the gold standard. We’ll be sharing stories, being as visible as possible and leaving behind photos and stories of people impacted by TrumpCare for them to remember when they vote. Beyond that, we’re encouraging groups to be visible outside the offices however they can. Bring whatever clothing, props and signage you believe work best for your group.
This action will mirror similar events happening in DC at the key Senators’ Capitol Hill offices.
TRUMPCARE STATE OF PLAY
Monday, July 17. The Congressional Budget Office is expected to come out with a new score of the bill. There could be some minimal changes in what CBO says about this version of the bill versus the old one that make this version look “better.” But the fact is, whatever this new version of the bill looks like, it will still be WAY WORSE than current law.
As early as Tuesday, July 18 or Wednesday, July 19. Republicans could move to the first procedural vote on TrumpCare, if Mitch McConnell thinks he has the votes. That first vote is called the “motion to proceed,” and if McConnell gets 50 votes there, it’s very likely the bill will pass. A final vote could take place as soon as Thursday, July 20.
