The Activist Movement to Finish Off Trump's Attack on Our Health Care System Is Making Waves Across the U.S.

Senate Republicans' continued war on Obamacare faces heated opposition on Capitol Hill—particularly from protesters who returned Monday for a mass sit-in outside the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. 


The dozens of protesters who showed up on Monday afternoon demanded Republican senators vote no on the Senate GOP's Obamacare replacement bill, formally known as the Better Health Reconciliation Act. A vote on the bill was delayed this week due to Arizona Republican John McCain's absence in the Senate due to surgery.

Meanwhile, other expected key swing votes have been under immense pressure to abandon the legislation, including Nevada Senator Dean Heller, who received a “threatening note” this past weekend, said local police. 

The Indivisible Guide has declared Tuesday, July 18, the first National Indivisible Day of Action to defeat the Senate bill. 

"We are encouraging Indivisible groups to plan visits to as many of their senators’ in-state offices as they can," said Indivisible Project co-executive director Leah Greenberg. "We’ll be holding rallies outside while groups visit staffers inside offices. We’ll be leaving behind photos and stories of people impacted by TrumpCare for them to remember when they vote."
