(Washington, D.C.) - In a newly released video, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), top Democrat on the Senate health committee, and Senate Democrats unveiled a campaign urging people in Washington state and across the country to speak out against Trumpcare and share their stories. As Senate Republicans continue to craft their new version of Trumpcare in secret and refuse to make the bill public, hold hearings, or solicit any bipartisan support, Americans remain frustrated as to why a bill that would impact the healthcare of millions and one-sixth of the U.S. economy would be kept under lock and key. Senator Murray and Democrats launched the new #AmericaSpeaksOut microsite so Americans who want to protect affordable, accessible health care can share their personal stories and why this debate matters so much to them. Senate Democrats are encouraging people nationwide to share on their social media accounts using the hashtag #AmericaSpeaksOut why they value affordable coverage for pre-existing conditions, why they are worried about health care costs, why Medicaid cuts would hurt their loved ones, and any other reasons why Trumpcare poses a risk to them.
