You might think that calling does nothing. But, it can have a huge impact, especially if a lot of people are calling in. As we have previously stated, you can dial (202) 224-3121 to reach an operator at the Capitol switchboard. Essentially, this means that you can be directed to any senator's or representative's office line.

Who Do I Call To Stop TrumpCare?

According to Indivisible Guide, it is best to call the Senate staffer (legislative assistant) that is handling health care for your Senators. You can also find a list of legislative assistants HERE.

So, once you call your Senator's DC office, you will likely be speaking to a staff assistant or intern. So, you should ask for the Senator's legislative assistant/health staffer by name. Then let them know why you are calling and what issue you are calling about. This time, it's important to let them know that you have questions regarding the health care bill.

What Do I Do If I Am Not Directed To A Health Staffer?

We understand that Senate staffers can receive hundreds of calls in one day. But, at the end of the day, they're there to serve you. Just remember to remain patient and kind, and they will do their best.

That being said, make sure you stand your ground. You can explain that you are a constituent and you would like to speak with the health staffer regarding the health care bill. If they connect you, great!

But, if they send you to voicemail, make sure to leave a message with your question and remember to request that they return your call. And if you are unable to connect with the staffer, remember to keep calling. Your voice will be heard.
