End Secrecy Around New Trumpcare Bill

Target: Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader

Goal: End closed-door policy on the GOP healthcare bill.

A group of Senate Republicans is drafting a new version of the “Trumpcare” healthcare bill, but doing so without holding public hearings or involving Senate Democrats in the process, and hoping for a vote on the bill before July 4. Like the first Trumpcare bill that was introduced in Congress, this version will include repealing many aspects of the Affordable Care Act and will result in millions of Americans losing healthcare.

This bill will affect millions of Americans if it is passed, yet it’s being drafted by a small group of Republican Senators behind closed doors and the public has been shown almost no information about what it will contain. Effective healthcare reform is not possible without an open process.

Add your name to the petition below to demand more input and transparency with regards to this bill.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator McConnell,

You’re currently drafting a secret new healthcare reform bill with other Senate Republicans without the benefit of public hearings, revisions, or input from Democrats. Your attempt to force a vote on a bill that has been drafted almost entirely in secret will only harm the millions of Americans that Trumpcare will likely rob of health insurance.

I urge you to put a stop to the closed-door policy on this legislation. Please hold public hearings and incorporate input from across the spectrum. Healthcare reform will affect millions of Americans, and this bill should be the product of many voices, not just a select Republican group.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Kathryn Irby says:

    We Demand Transparency NOW, McConnell !!!

  3. This is a travesty to Democracy! Shame on them!

  4. Chris Ferrara says:

    Didn’t Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid do the same thing to all of us about 8 years ago?

      No. The ACA was online for everyone to read. Also, the Democrats had months of deliberations and included the Republicans in the crafting of the bill. Republicans offered over 100 amendments to Obamacare. So there is a big difference in the way Dems handled the ACA and how the shady, untrustworthy Republicans are handling their atrocity of a healthcare bill. I read yesterday that even people who get their healthcare through their job will suffer big financial losses if an accident or disease happens. Plus, I heard deductibles for many people will be higher. It sounds like they should keep the ACA and just make changes where necessary.

  5. McConnell…..look back at your words on, I believe, December 9, 2009.

    Man, what a flip-flopper!!!

    You’re a miserable hypocrite and a stain on our nation’s history.

    Oh, please respond!! I dare you!

  6. Why bother with democracy, go right,, with an ism, why don’t you?

  7. I will NOT sign this petition due to the utter hypocrisy of Force Change! You said not ONE WORD when the Dems refused to release what was contained in Obamacare! Remember when Nancy Pelosi said, “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it”??!! Crickets from the progressive leftists. Hypocrites!!

  8. Oscar Byington says:

    McConnell looks like your days are numbered if you don’t get your ass in line and proceed on the straight and narrow.
    You are getting like your screwed up friend Harry Reed a LLMF.

  9. Paulette Mirfield says:

    If they were required to follow the same guidelines it would be a different story. The reason it’s so secretive is that it is the same as the one the house passed (and applauded by 45)…just reworded.

  10. THE SO CALLED GOP HEALTH-CARE BILL
    IS A HORRIBLE DISASTER.

    IT STRIPS HEALTH CARE FROM MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

    I WILL NOT VOTE FOR ANY LAWMAKER in any party IN ANY FUTURE ELECTION WHO VOTED FOR THIS MONSTROSITY BILL..

    I WILL ALSO BE MAKING CONTRIBUTIONS TO ORGANIZATIONS DEDICATED TO UNSEATING ANY OF THESE POLITICIANS WHO OBVIOUSLY ONLY CARE ABOUT PUTTING CORPORATE GREED OVER THE HEALTH AND SAFTY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

      Illuminati/secret society/skull& Bones. Their goal to wipe out most of the population. Only the extremely rich to survive.

  11. Heather Brophy says:

    We pay you so open up the door with your secrets or get the hell out!

    • TruthSeeker says:

      That will NEVER happen. They are SUPERIOR to the rest of us because they obtained their massive wealth illegally, through us taxpayers. We are their SLAVES. They are all on WELFARE, by, and through us, by FORCE. Evil is as evil does.

  12. Selena Brooks says:

    SECRETS SECRETS SECRETS Trump and his crooked cronies are famous for SECRETS. This is why you and you’re idiot administration are getting investigated. Wonder why? All of you need to be fired, resign, convicted and IMPEACHED!

  13. Laurie Miskell says:

    I hope these idiot politicians remember WHO keeps them working. After all they do have to be voted in. We have the most corrupt system in the world and its thanks to McConnell and all the other politicians just like him.

  14. Denise Kastner says:

    As Scalise lies in a hospital bed in critical condition, I pray that he will survive. He DID vote for the mentally ill to freely by guns. He also does not have to worry how much his medical bills. If the exact same shooting happened to most people, they would leave the hospital owing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Health care needs to fair and Bi-Partisan. My since prayers are with him and his extended family. We reap what we sow. Effective gun legislature is over due.
