What happens when seniors who worked their entire lives are suddenly unable to afford healthcare? What kind of future do we create when children aren’t able to get the medical care they need because they were born with a disability? How do we support individuals who want and need substance abuse counseling or mental health services when the funding for those services is no longer available?
These are the questions we all face as GOP Senators continue to push for repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Though the Better Care Reconciliation Act is off the table due in large part to advocacy from people like you, we still need to make sure to keep up the pressure so that the ACA is properly funded and continues to provide access to affordable health care for millions of Americans.
You can help put an end to harmful healthcare cuts that will devastate our community members who would otherwise have no access to healthcare.
1. Take a few minutes out of your day to call your Senator at (202) 224-3121. You can share a personal story of a time when you used the healthcare system under the Affordable Care Act or simply urge them to oppose any cuts to Medicaid.
2. Encourage your colleagues, friends, or family in other states to contact their Senators as well.
3. Challenge your network to take action and share these three action items across social media with the hashtag #ProtectOurCare.
