Example script

“Good morning/afternoon! I am calling today to ask Senator ______ to support the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act. I hope it receives a vote on the Senate floor. It will stop unjustified price increases on drugs and save seniors money. 

Lower drug prices should be Congress’ top priority and the passage of this bill would be a huge first step. Thank you”
