re: yesterday's victory
Thanks to your hard work, House Republicans have delayed their vote to repeal Obamacare. Pitch in $3 to help Democrats keep fighting, and we'll send you a new sticker so you can show the GOP you won't back down.
Yesterday, after failing to get enough Republicans to support his catastrophic health care bill, Donald Trump held a press conference to blame the defeat of Trumpcare on... Democrats.
According to Donald, the reason his health care bill failed in the House is that no Democrats would vote for it.
You're damn right we wouldn't.
Paul Ryan and the House GOP were desperate to jam through a health care bill that would cause 24 million Americans to lose their health insurance. Democrats stood firm and made clear that we wouldn't let that happen. And Donald Trump, master deal-maker that he supposedly is, couldn't get the members of his own party to vote for it.
If passing Trumpcare was a task on The Apprentice, I'm pretty sure Donald would be fired.
We've seen what happens when Donald Trump loses -- he starts looking for new ways to rehash old battles. And after seven years and more than 60 votes to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act, you can bet that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell aren't giving up for good.
Yesterday, we sent Republicans a message to keep their hands off of Obamacare. Let's make sure they don't forget it.
Pitch in $3 or whatever you can, and we'll send you a free "Hands Off Obamacare" sticker so you can show Republicans you'll keep fighting for affordable health care for all.

⚠️ BREAKING: Obamacare is safe! (for now)
Thanks to your hard work, House Republicans have delayed their vote to repeal Obamacare. Pitch in $10 to help Democrats keep fighting, and we'll send you a new sticker so you can show the GOP you won't back down.
Paul Ryan just postponed the vote to repeal Obamacare!
This is a huge victory -- grassroots Democrats like you made hundreds of thousands of calls and signed petitions to oppose this bill, and House Republicans buckled under the pressure.
But we can't rest easy just yet. The vote on this bill has just been put off, not canceled. You can bet that Republicans are just as committed as ever to getting rid of the Affordable Care Act and taking health care away from millions of Americans.
Help make sure we're ready to fight back. Chip in $10 or whatever you can, and we'll send you a free sticker so you can tell Republicans to keep their hands off Obamacare.

TOMORROW: Obamacare repeal vote
Democrats believe health care is a right, not a privilege. Denying health care to those who need it the most while helping your friends is not who we are as Americans.
The plan Donald Trump and Paul Ryan are trying so desperately to jam through the House right now moves us further away from, not closer to, providing affordable health care for all Americans.
We're not going to let the GOP move us backwards. Before they vote tomorrow, add your name to tell them to vote "no" on this bill that would cost Americans more money for less care.
This is a matter of life or death. This is the difference between early detection of life-threatening illness or not, the ability to take preventative measures from serious health crises or not, getting necessary treatment or not.
The stakes couldn't be higher. Sign your name right now -- it will only take a minute to get your signature on the record. Tell the GOP they cannot allow this disastrous health care bill to pass:
Thanks for doing your part.
