Dear Fellow New Mexican,
THIS WEEK IN BRIEF:
- Contact your representatives to STOP TRUMPCARE!!
THIS WEEK IN DETAIL:
This is an emergency push to "kill the bill" before it kills us!
If TrumpCare passes, New Mexicans will suffer and die as 250,000 are dumped off health insurance b/c of high risk pools, pre-existing conditions, high premium costs, PlannedParenthood closing, and Medicaid gone. Please make as many of these calls as you are able, as often as you are able!
1. CALL NEW MEXICO'S DEMOCRATIC SENATORS
"Thank you for voting NO to TrumpCare. Please also withhold consent on all Senate business and filibuster by adding amendments. Hundreds of thousands of lives are at stake. Is Senator ________ willing to take these measures to stop the AHCA?
- Sen. Tom Udall: 202-224-6621 AND 505-346-6791
- Sen. Martin Heinrich: 202-224-5521 AND 505-346-6601
- Sign onto amendments that will be sent to our senators. https://www.ouramendments.org/
2. CALL "MIGHT VOTE NO" REPUBLICAN SENATORS
We need at least 3 Senators to vote NO on TrumpCare. Call from the list below, and if you have friends in any of these states, urge them to make the call as well.
"I would like to ask Senator ________ to oppose the AHCA. This bill will affect every American, but has been composed in secrecy. I would like to ask that Senator ________ to urge Mitch McConnell to slow the process down and conduct open, transparent hearings so the Senate can create a bill that Americans actually support.

“TrumpCare will devastate New Mexico’s already fragile economy; 250,000 New Mexicans will lose healthcare; and 36,000 jobs will be lost. Speak out against this bill that will harm my family, friends, and neighbors.”
Thank you for all you are doing!
