Dave Reichert is “undecided” on new Trump/ Ryancare bill: Time to call his office again

Donald Trump and Paul Ryan are trying once again to take away the healthcare of millions of Americans. For this attempt, they’ve struck a deal with the far-right wing “Freedom Caucus”, hoping to secure the votes of the most militant and extreme members of the House Republican Caucus. But that deal has come at a cost: squeamish, more reasonable Republicans are refusing to pledge their support.

Twenty Republicans are in the no camp so far including Jaime Herrera-Beutler (WA-03). If a few more join, the bill won’t have enough votes to pass.

Dave Reichert is once again (surprise, surprise) in the “undecided” camp.

Please call his office in D.C. at (202) 225-7761 and ask him to oppose this bill. If you can’t get through, call the Issaquah district offices at (425) 677-7414 or (877) 920-9208 or the Wenatchee office at (509) 885-6615.
