My name is [your name] and I'm a constituent of Representative [member's last name]. I am calling to request that he/she cosponsor the USAccounts Act: Investing in America’s Future Act of 2018. This bill would make access to savings—and higher education—a reality for all Americans by investing in our children from birth. Research shows that having savings set aside for post-secondary education can have a powerful impact on children's aspirations for their future and on their educational attainment. This is an important bill that will ensure every newborn starts off with a small nest egg for his or her future in the form of an account opened automatically with a $500 deposit. I urge Representative [member's last name] to invest in America's future and sign on as a cosponsor.
