Demand Republicans Listen to Citizens’ Opinions on Health Care

Target: Kevin McCarthy, Republican Leader

Goal: Schedule town hall meetings to listen to your constituents regarding the health care vote.

House Republicans voted to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, but now that they are back in their districts, extremely few have scheduled town halls or other public events to address their constituents face-to-face. This could be because they do not want to face the public’s concern, frustration, and anger about the bill, which allows insurance companies to charge exponentially higher prices for those with pre-existing conditions (which includes everything from asthma to mental health conditions and even pregnancy).

Of 238 members of the GOP, fewer than 20 House Republicans have plans to hold formal town halls. Some Democrats are even holding events in districts adjacent to their own where a Republican representative refuses to, so that the residents there can have their voices heard even if their own representative won’t listen. However it is vital that all House Republicans do their duty and face the fallout of their decisions. Sign below to force Republicans to listen to their constituents and schedule a town hall.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. McCarthy,

It is your sworn duty to represent your constituents, and you can not effectively do that if you will not hear their needs and concerns. Following the vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, many Americans are worried about their future and the future of their families, and about being unable to afford vital health care.

You owe it to your constituents to hear them out, and to meet with them face to face. Our future is in your hands. I urge you to ask Republicans to plan town halls or public events in which the voices of their constituents can be heard.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
