It would leave 23 million Americans uninsured, raise the costs of insurance for older Americans (in some cases, eightfold! <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx ley-iq&crop=18590.127850574.20873656.7791867&report_id=&redirect=https%3 a%2f%2ftwitter.com%2fSenJeffMerkley%2fstatus%2f877270338354204673&redir_ log=71543110761369> ), deny millions of women preventive care at Planned Parenthood, and threaten care for the 40% of kids in Oregon who rely on Medicaid.

Dear Unity,

Red alert! We now have just ONE WEEK until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he wants to vote on a bill that would rip health care away from millions and throw the system into chaos. We have one week to protect our lifesaving care.

Even President Trump thinks the House health care bill is mean. It would leave 23 million Americans uninsured, raise the costs of insurance for older Americans (), deny millions of women preventive care at Planned Parenthood, and threaten care for the 40% of kids in Oregon who rely on Medicaid.

We're just getting to look at what the Senate majority has been cooking up in secret behind closed doors, and it is very similar. No wonder they've been so desperate to prevent people from seeing the bill.

We asked for the Senate majority to commit to a transparent process that would give the American public ample time to weigh in. Thirteen times, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused.

This secrecy stands in stark contrast to the process that led to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, when we held over 100 hearings, roundtables and walkthroughs, and spent weeks in committee considering hundreds of amendments.

Join me in telling my colleagues that for once, Donald Trump was right: This health care bill IS mean. It must not be passed. This bill is about people, and whether we're making it easier for Americans to live their lives and pursue their dreams. Now more than ever, we need YOU to make your voices heard.

Share your story on what higher premiums, exclusions for pre-existing conditions, and lost coverage would mean to you and your loved ones. Help me illustrate the true, human costs of this disastrous bill. Let’s send a message loud and clear that health care is a basic right, and that Americans won’t idly sit by and let the Senate rip it away.

All my best,
Jeff
