Five easy steps to a big impact:
1.) Buy or make some Mothers' Day cards.
2.) In the cards, write polite messages to your Senators that they must not support a health care bill that does not protect people with chronic illnesses and disabilities and they must not pass a health care bill that includes any of the elements of the draconian MacArthur Amendment in the House Bill:
- There must be no waivers to states from providing essential services (such as medication or care for chronic illnesses)
- No allowing states to charge people with pre-existing conditions more for health insurance
- No waivers redefining essential services and thus allowing annual limits
- No waivers redefining essential services and thus allowing lifetime limits
3.) Be sure to send at least one card to each of your U.S. Senators by Wednesday - don't forget stamps!
4.) Document your action on social media at #MothersDayHealthCareRumpus, especially Twitter.
5.) Share this information about the Rumpus far and wide (you may need to copy and paste the link) and let us make a wild, thumping noise about saving our children's health care!
