Contact Your Elected Officials

Contact Your Members of Congress

Members of Congress value what their constituents think. Senators Isakson and Perdue need to hear from you today. By calling and then emailing, you are telling them to protect your health care. Tell your Senators that you want them to set aside partisan efforts and instead work together in a bi-partisan manner to strengthen Medicaid, build on the ACA, and improve the health care system for all Georgians.

When contacting your members of Congress, remember to be concise, persuasive, and courteous. If you have a personal connection to Medicaid or the Affordable Care Act, include that in your comments. You may also want to mention if you are a health care provider, enrollment assister, work with people who are covered by the ACA or Medicaid, or otherwise have a professional perspective on health care.

Step 1: Make the call

Call 202-224-3643 to be connected to Senator Isakson. Call 202-224-3521 to be connected to Senator Perdue.

Suggested script:

Good [morning/afternoon]. My name is [NAME] and I live in [CITY/TOWN], Georgia.

As a constituent, I urge you to vote against the tax bill because it will cut health care coverage for millions and drive up insurance premiums.

[OPTIONAL BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: ADD 2-3 SENTENCES ABOUT YOUR OWN PERSONAL STORY AND WHY HEALTH COVERAGE IS IMPORTANT TO YOU]

I am counting on you to oppose any bill that causes people to lose health insurance coverage.

Thank you.

Step 2: Send an email

We highly recommend that you edit the pre-written text in the email if you can. Mention how you or people you know have benefitted from Medicaid or the Affordable Care Act.
