Sample Call Script
Hi, this is ________ ________ and I'm calling to urge Senator ________ to OPPOSE "cloture" on the continuing resolution (CR) to stop Harry Reid's trick plan to fund Obamacare with only 50 votes.
Is Senator ________ going to vote against cloture? ...
I strongly oppose Obamacare and I hope the senator will stand with Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and oppose cloture so the Democrats can't fund it. We must stop the implementation of Obamacare and there are millions of Americans counting on the senator to stand strong.
Will you please pass my message on to the senator? ...
The House passed a bipartisan bill to prevent a government shutdown and to defund Obamacare so it won't be implemented this year. This House legislation represents the will of the American people and the Senate should approve it. Unfortunately, Harry Reid and the Democrats plan to add Obamacare funding back into the bill using a procedural trick that allows them to fund Obamacare with only 50 votes.
Senate Republicans can stop Harry Reid's plan to fund Obamacare by defeating cloture a vote on the process that requires 60 votes. If Republicans defeat cloture, they can protect the House bill that defunds Obamacare and pressure Democrats to adopt it.
However, if Republicans vote for cloture, Obamacare will be funded and millions of Americans will be forced into a government program that is unaffordable, unworkable, and unfair.
A vote for cloture is a vote to fund Obamacare.
Don't let Senate Republicans tell you the vote on cloture is a vote to "defund" Obamacare. It is not. Cloture approves the debate process, not the bill being debated.<.b> If cloture were truly a vote to "defund" Obamacare, the Democrats would not be supporting it.
