The Senate is deeply divided over a proposed Obamacare replacement bill, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pushing ahead anyway. A new version of the legislation is scheduled to be released Thursday, and a vote is set for next week.
On Friday morning, Indivisible Southern Arizona will continue its string of recent rallies focused on sending an unequivocal message to Senators Flake and McCain: Vote NO, and protect your constituents.
The Tucson-based group will gather at Senator McCain's Congress Street office from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
"It's been a hot four weeks of rallies," said Kristen Randall, the lead organizer for Indivisible Southern Arizona. "But we'll keep up the pressure as long as necessary to show our Senators why they shouldn't support this deeply flawed bill."
The current version of the proposed Better Care Act would strip health insurance from 400,000 Arizonans and 2.2 million Americans, according to independent congressional estimates.
An updated assessment of Senate Republicans' latest proposal is due out on Monday.
Indivisible Southern Arizona consists of about 3,000 citizens from Arizona congressional districts 1, 2 and 3 who are committed to resisting the radical portions of President Donald Trump's agenda. The grassroots organization is part of a larger Indivisible movement comprised of almost 6,000 similar groups throughout the country.
