The Senate is poised to consider health care legislation before the July 4th Congressional Recess, which will repeal major portions of the Affordable Care Act.
Like the House-passed American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628), the Senate version, being drafted behind closed doors, expects to undermine vital protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, eliminate essential health benefits, increase premiums, cut Medicaid, and cause as many as 23 million people to lose coverage.
It’s critical that Senators hear from you! Especially if you live in a state with Senator’s who are currently undecided in terms of their votes, such as: Susan Collins (R-ME), Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV), Rob Portman (R-OH), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Dean Heller (R-NV), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Ted Cruz (R-TX).
As a Social Worker and constituent your voice is powerful. Contact your Senators, today, and urge them to support a new direction that prioritizes the needs of our nation’s most vulnerable populations and promotes health security for all Americans.
