Immediate Action Needed to Save ACA!

We are hearing that tomorrow, the Senate Republican leadership plans to release the health care bill they have been writing behind closed doors.  Intel reports the bill is expected to be 80% of the AHCA—the horrific House-passed bill.  Their plan is to vote on the bill as early as next Thursday! 

Again, what we are told is that their bill would remove key protections the ACA put in place nationwide allowing people with pre-existing conditions to get affordable coverage and will allow insurers to charge higher premiums for older Americans. Also, there are major concerns about a proposal to gut Medicaid—and make even deeper cuts than the House version.

We need everyone calling their Senators EVERY DAY until the vote happens!

Call your Republican Senators’ Washington office daily and urge them to oppose any bill that would:

  • increase the number of people without insurance
  • decrease protections for people with pre-existing conditions
  • end the Medicaid expansion or
  • destroy the Medicaid program as we know it.

Tell them to stop trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Lives depend on it and women and men with, and at risk of, breast cancer are watching. 

Also, call your Democrat Senators’ Washington office to urge them to do everything in their power to stop ACA repeal efforts and Medicaid cuts.

Your advocacy this week and next week is critical to saving the ACA from repeal. Thank you for taking action!
