RED Alert 5/29

REMEDIATE:

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score was released this week regarding the health care bill passed in the House (American Health Care Act). The CBO score shows that the new bill would leave 23 million people uninsured and block millions of people from receiving care at Planned Parenthood Centers. The next stop is the Senate. Here's a great calling tool from Planned Parenthood that links you to your Senators office and provides a script for the conversations:
