Calling your Representatives

Sample phone call scripts and email scripts to Members of Congress with a specific request about Single-payer healthcare:

“ I’m calling / writing from postal code XXXXX. I want to tell Rep. Carbajal that I appreciate that he became a co-sponsor of HR1384 – the Improved Medicare for All bill. I believe it is important that he support healthcare bills that are real single payer bills that get for-profit insurance companies out of healthcare insurance. I urge him to actively work towards passing a single-payer bill. Only a single-payer system will truly result in 100% coverage and provide access to health care as a right not based on ability to pay.

 

“ I’m calling from postal code XXXXX. I want to tell Rep. Brownley that I am very disappointed that she has not co-sponsored HR1384 – the Improved Medicare for All bill. I believe it is important that she support healthcare bills that are real single-payer bills that get for-profit insurance companies out of healthcare insurance. Only a single-payer system will truly result in 100% coverage and provide access to healthcare as a right not by ability to pay. I am urging Congresswoman Brownley to become a co-sponsor of HR1384 and active supporter of a single-payer healthcare system.

 

“ I’m calling from postal code XXXXX. I want to tell Senator Harris that I appreciate that she is a co-sponsor of SB1129 – the Medicare for All bill. I believe it is important that she support healthcare bills that are real single-payer bills that get for-profit insurance companies out of healthcare insurance. Unlike what she supported during her campaign for president I urge her to actively work towards passing a real single-payer bill like SB-1129. Only a single-payer system will truly result in 100% coverage and provide access to healthcare as a right not based on ability to pay.

 

“ I’m calling from postal code XXXXX. I want to tell Senator Feinstein that I am very disappointed that she has not co-sponsored SB1129 – the Medicare for All bill. I believe it is important that she support healthcare bills that are real single-payer bills that get for-profit insurance companies out of healthcare insurance. Only a single-payer system will truly result in 100% coverage and provide access to healthcare as a right not by ability to pay. I am urging Senator Feinstein to become a co-sponsor of SB1129 and an active supporter of a single-payer healthcare system.

 

Sample phone call scripts to California State Senator and Assemblymembers – this shows that this is an important issue for you.

 

“ I’m calling from postal code XXXXX. I want to tell Assemblymember X / Senator X that I believe a single-payer system of health insurance is the only way California (and ultimately the country) can achieve access to healthcare for 100% of Californians. Only with a single-payer system of health insurance can we have access to healthcare as a right and not based on ability to pay as is our current system. I ask Assemblymember X / Senator X to support and fight for legislative efforts that get us closer to a single-payer healthcare system.
