Keep Up Senate Action to Save ACA

The decision by Republican Leader McConnell to delay the health care vote until after the July 4th recess was a limited victory for grassroots advocates across this country. There will be a new version and a push for a new vote. These next several weeks are incredibly important for us to increase our advocacy! WE MUST keep the volume up in every way—by showing up at town halls, parades and other events where Senators are over the recess, telling our ACA and Medicaid stories, calling Senators’ Washington offices and speaking out on social media/digitally.

We know that Leader McConnell will be working hard to get 50 Republicans to a yes vote on the Senate bill—but we have to work harder to get at least 3 Republican Senators to vote no. This bill cannot be fixed! 

Continue to 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. 

The following list identifies key Senate targets. Please share this email with anyone you know in these states and urge them to call the office daily also with the above message:

Senator Dean Heller (NV)                     202-224-6244 
Senator Susan Collins (ME)                  202-224-2523 
Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK)               202-224-6665  
Senator Shelley Moore Capito (WV)     202-224-6472
Senator Bill Cassidy (LA)                      202-224-5824 
Senator Jeff Flake (AZ)                         202-224-4521
Senator Cory Gardner (CO)                   202-224-5941
Senator Rob Portman (OH)                   202-224-3353

This truly is a fight to save lives. We need you, your family, friends, colleagues and everyone who cares about access to health care taking actions to make our voices heard every day!

Many thanks for your advocacy.
