This could be our last chance to protect the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Senators are gearing up to vote on a new plan to replace the ACA before the end of the month. It’s a last-ditch effort that will harm the American public by cutting health coverage and raising premiums and out of pocket costs for millions.
The legislation is sponsored by Senators Graham (R-SC) and Cassidy (R-LA). Like previous proposals, it is a partisan attempt to repeal the ACA. The legislation will gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions, cut funding for Medicaid expansion, raise costs and eliminate coverage for millions of Americans.
Now is the time to call your Senators. Call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Senators today.
Tell them to reject the Graham-Cassidy health care legislation.
The Affordable Care Act is not a perfect law but it has provided health care to millions of Americans who previously went without coverage. It is high time Congress stops trying to repeal this life-saving legislation.
Call your Senators today at (202) 224-3121! This is our last chance to fight back.
