Members of Congress are voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and make major cuts to Medicaid and Medicare. Please join the National Call-In Week and tell your Representative to oppose these cuts to health coverage and #ProtectOurCare.
Call (866) 426-2631
The U.S. Congress is back on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. this week and some U.S. Senators and Representatives are already talking about moving ahead with plans to roll back advances in healthcare coverage and gut the Affordable Care Act (ACA). To this we say: Not on our watch! This would put coverage at risk for nearly 30 million people. That’s not a typo. The healthcare of 30 million people is on the line.
Can you make a call to NOW and tell them NOT to repeal the Affordable Care Act?
It’s time to turbocharge our efforts. Momentum is growing across the U.S. to stop the repeal of the ACA; and polls show an overwhelming majority of people disapprove of Republican lawmakers’ plan to repeal it without knowing how they might replace it.
The time to call is now. Many U.S. Senators are starting to realize the implications of this horrible direction and Repealing the ACA without a replacement plan is reckless and dangerous for America’s families and economy! The repeal of the ACA would be devastating to families and would have far-reaching negative financial implications for our communities and nation. Hard-working people across the U.S. have benefited greatly from this new law through improvements such as:
- All new insurance plans are required to cover preventive services at no cost—like check-ups, well-child visits, birth control, cancer screenings, and vaccines.
- People with pre-existing conditions like asthma, cancer, and diabetes can no longer be denied or charged more for coverage.
- People with chronic illnesses no longer face lifetime caps on their benefits that basically cuts off their coverage when they need it most.
- Medicaid has improved and now provides coverage to millions more, including hard-working parents.
A repeal of the ACA will also have a devastating effect on our economy, resulting in a $140 billion loss (yes, billion with a B) in federal funding for healthcare and a loss of 2.6 million jobs across all states in 2019.
Tell her – Please Don’t Take Away our Health Care- Do Not Repeal the Affordable Care Act – 25,000 people in Oneida County will lose their Health Care. Please do not raise the age for Medicare or turn it into a voucher program or cut Medicaid funding to our state. Please Keep your hands off our health care!
We are also asking constituents in CD 21 and CD 24 to make calls as well.
