Americans are  learning that they hold the key to protecting their health care. It’s called democracy.
After Congress took the first steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement—which would leave more than 2.7 million New Yorkers without insurance—public resistance has forced them to pause.
That means there’s time for more personal stories to demonstrate that affordable, high-quality healthcare for all peopel  is not negotiable.
Share your healthcare story so we can raise our voices as one.
This is the moment to make sure lawmakers know we won’t stand by as they try to roll back the ACA’s crucial protections for kids and families..
We’ll fight their efforts to block-grant Medicaid, which would deny the only insurance available to many of the most vulnerable people. And we will stand up for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Personal stories are a powerful tool. Share yours.
Together, we can make the political system work the way it should – and protect families and kids
We need folks to share how they have been helped by the ACA; please call 315-725-0974 or email  People can write comments, speak at our upcoming meeting, or we can video tape you.  Share your story here:!
