The Senate Tries One More Time and Your Voice Is Needed

July 21, 2017 09:00 AM

The US Senate will try one more time to get a bill passed that defunds Planned Parenthood. Senator McConnell announced he will have the Senate vote next week on a bill that is the same as the bill the Senate passed in 2015. That bill made it all the way to President Obama’s desk before he vetoed it.

The Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act will repeal some of Obamacare and eliminate for one year about $400 million in taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood. All but one current Republican senator voted for the same repeal bill in 2015. We need to have them do it again.

To get a vote on the Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act, at least 50 senators must first support a procedural vote. We must have the support of our members of Congress. Tell your senators to vote YES on the procedural vote and then vote YES again on the actual bill.

Please call your two US senators at (202) 224-3121 to urge them to support the "motion to proceed" to the Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act (H.R. 1628), which would repeal some of Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood, just as they successfully did in 2015.
