Support Health Care Reform and Expansion
Senator Dianne Feinstein
SF Office: (415) 393-0707
DC Office: (202) 224-3841
LA Office: (310) 914-7300
Fresno Office: (559) 485-7430
San Diego Office: (619) 231-9712
If you can't get through to one office, try another. There is no benefit to calling one office over another. Leaving a voicemail is as good as reaching a live person. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.
Senator Kamala Harris
SF Office: (415) 981-9369
DC Office: (202) 224-3553
Sacramento Office: (916) 448-2787
LA Office: (213) 894-5000
San Diego Office: (619) 239-3884
Call the SF office first, but try the other offices if you can’t get through. If you can’t get a live person, leave a voicemail and also send a follow-up email written in your own words. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi
SF Office: (415) 556-4862
DC Office: (202) 225-4965
Call the SF office first, but try the DC office if you can’t get through. If you get voicemail, hang up and try a few more times to talk to a real person. Don’t give up! Short direct messages are most effective. Hate the phone? Resistbot is your friend.
My name is __________. I am a constituent, and my zip code is _______. I am a member of Indivisible SF.
I am [calling/writing] to thank you for continuing to support health care reform and expansion for everyone in America. We need strong, bold, decisive measures, not compromises that privilege the financial interests of Wall Street over the human needs of Main Street.
Therefore, I urge you to support and co-sponsor bills such as:
Some form of affordable and comprehensive “single-payer” or “medicare for all” health coverage that everyone in America is eligible to join if they so choose. One possibility is the “Medicare for All Act” (HR.1384/S.1129).
“Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions and Making Health Care More Affordable Act” (HR.1884/S.466) to improve affordability of, increase access to, and undo sabotage of existing health insurance coverage.
Prescription Drug Price Relief Act (HR.465/S.102) to lower all drug prices & require transparency on the part of drug companies.
Medicare Negotiation and Competitive Licensing Act (HR.1046/S.377) to require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate prices of prescription drugs.
Like water, food, housing, and education, health care is a human right. But while the medical quality of health care available to Americans who can afford it is high, health care cost, availability, and bureaucratic complexity is abysmal. As currently legislated by Washington, our for-profit health system prioritizes the profits of pharmaceutical, insurance, hospital, and medical-practice corporations over the needs of people.
For far too long, we the people have allowed corporate lobbyists to determine health care policy and pricing. It's time for us to step up and demand that our elected representatives take our interests into account over insurance companies, HMOs, and the American Medical Association.
