Today Senator Capito is joining President Trump in making a visit to the Boy Scout National Jamboree, and no doubt Trump will be using this opportunity to twist our Senator’s arm on healthcare. On top of that, the Senate is expected to vote on another (secret) healthcare bill as early as tomorrow. That’s why it’s more critical than ever that we urge Senator Capito to vote NO! Come join us this week for events in Huntington and Charleston!
Keep those Calls Coming!
The easiest and most impactful thing you can do right now is making a daily phone call to Senator Capito’s DC and WV district offices. It takes less than 30 seconds, and sends a direct message to the Senator and her staff that West Virginians are paying attention and unwilling to accept anything but a NO vote on this disastrous bill. It couldn’t be easier, and if you’d like to see an example of what to expect, check out this video of a call by local advocate Rusty Williams, shared by the WV Progressive Alliance:
So pick up and call now: (202) 224-6472 (DC) or (304) 347-5372 (Charleston), and tell Sen. Capito “This bill can’t be fixed. It will raise premiums, and put the 291,000 WV Kids who depend on Medicaid/CHIP at risk, all to give a huge tax-break to millionaires. Vote NO!”

“Interfaith Vigil: Healthcare is a Moral Issue” Thursday in Charleston
An interfaith group of local religious leaders and Charleston’s own Rise Up WV are holding a vigil this Thursday (July 27th) to remind our representatives of a simple truth: Healthcare is a moral issue. We all deserve care.
As West Virginians, we value generosity and caring for our neighbors. Our members of Congress would not be representing our West Virginia values if they vote to throw families off of Medicaid and eliminate thousands of jobs in the healthcare industry in our state.
When & Where: Thursday, July 27th 12:00-12:30PM in Davis Park (corner of Lee and Capitol St., Charleston)
