The battle over legislation that would repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continues in the U.S. Senate where a small group of Senators are secretly working to make decisions that will cut coverage, raise rates and give the richest Americans tax breaks at the expense of everyone else.
Legislation passed by the U.S. House to repeal and replace the ACA fails to reflect the American values of fairness, community and concern for all. It will cut coverage for 14million Americans in the next year, raise premiums by 20% and give nearly $700 billion to the wealthy and big corporations. The Senate is trying to push us down the same disastrous path, pushing to gut coverage for people with pre-existing conditions while doing long-term damage to Medicaid.
Changes are needed to ensure adequate, quality, accessible healthcare for all Americans but this plan is not one of them.

CALL the Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 and tell your Senators:
Any bill that moves forward must do the following:
- Guarantee that pre-existing conditions can’t be used to deny coverage or raise rates.
- Ensure health insurance rates and access do not discriminate against women
- Provide coverage of preventive care, limit out of pocket costs and prohibit life-time insurance caps
- Ensure that Medicaid recipients can continue to receive full health care services.
