TALKING points

-I'm calling to ask Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to bring the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act (H.R. 647/S. 313) under suspension next week.

-As Majority Leader, we need his leadership to bring the MOST BIPARTISAN BILL up for a vote - the ABLE Act has 85% of the ENTIRE CONGRESS COSPONSORING IT - with 74 Senators and 381 Representatives cosponsoring.

-The House Ways and Means Committee already unanimously voted the ABLE Act out of committee.

-The Senate Finance Committee held a hearing on the bill and, in September, issued a press release outlining their intention to being the ABLE Act to a vote once Congress returns from recess and after the election.

-The ABLE Act will make a life-changing difference in the lives of the disability community and long overdue - please, as the Majority Leader, bring the ABLE Act to a VOTE.

Thank you for all you do and let's #passtheABLEact this year!
