Remember to thank Sen. Feinstein and Sen. Harris for their recent opposition to Betsy DeVos and Jeff Sessions, and for holding the floor against these two unqualified cabinet members. Never in recent history has a president’s cabinet confirmations seen this much resistance and it’s thanks to you! The fight continues with Tom Price, nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services, who wants to repeal the ACA (see script below). Keep on calling!
Dianne Feinstein (D)
Kamala Harris (D)
Hello, I’m [name] and a constituent living in [city].
May I speak to the staffer in charge of healthcare issues?
(If not there)
May I have their name and email?
I’m calling to ask Senator [name] if he/she supports the nomination of Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Thank you. I support the Senator’s position as Rep. Price is clearly unqualified for the position.
(If yes or unsure)
How does Senator [name] feel about a nominee that doesn’t have a plan to replace the ACA?
According to CNN, Rep. Price has been kept out of transition talks to craft a replacement bill.
How does Senator [name] feel about a nominee who purchased stock in a company he introduced legislation to benefit, a clear ethics violation?
Last March, Price invested in medical device company Zimmer Biomet before introducing a bill to delay regulation harmful to the company.
Thank you for taking my call. Rep. Price is not qualified to lead the Dept. of HHS
