There is no let-up of issues of enormous consequence, that call for action. This is one that requires “all hands on deck”. Please call your Senators as soon as possible urging them to oppose the Graham-Cassidy proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Everything you need to know is in the message below from NETWORK. If you are a sister use that title. It has power.
ACA Repeal is back
Once again, Republicans in the Senate are rushing to pass a repeal of the Affordable Care Act that would cause millions to lose healthcare coverage.
The new legislation, referred to as the Graham-Cassidy proposal, is even more devastating than past repeal attempts. Your phone calls stopped ACA repeal in July, and we need them now more than ever. Call your Senators now at 1-888-738-3058 to stop this last-ditch effort to take healthcare away from millions of people.
The Senate is reportedly one vote away from passing this bill and fundamentally altering our healthcare system. It would, among other things:
–Cause 15 million people to become uninsured by next year
–Leave approximately 32 million people uninsured by 2027
–Eliminate ACA’s expansion of Medicaid for low-income people
–Eliminate ACA’s subsidies that help people afford premiums
–Decimate Medicaid through “per capita caps” – leading to funding caps and billions of dollars in cuts
–Allow states to gut consumer protections – including protections for people with pre-existing conditions
If this is the first time you are hearing about this, that’s because their goal is to pass it before people can find out just how bad it is. The Senate is rushing to get this through with only 51 votes (instead of the standard 60), which they can only do until September 30. That’s why we need you to make your voice heard right now to stop this bill once and for all.
