Remember the House’s Affordable Heath Care Act (AHCA) — you know, the one that only 8% of Americans think should pass as is and even Trump called “mean”? After the AHCA passed the house, only 21% of voters supported it, showing overwhelming disapproval by Americans for a bill that would remove protections for pre-existing conditions, dramatically cut Medicaid and strip millions of Americans of their health care.
By contrast, 77% of Americans oppose repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) at all or at least without a suitable replacement and 71% prefer a bipartisan solution to fix the ACA over any repeal and replace plan.
Leaders of the Senate have decided to put forth a “motion to proceed” to a Senate vote on the AHCA, vowing to then amend the bill if the motion succeeds. But no specific ideas have been put forth on how to amend the bill to meet voters’ concerns, and health care experts. The vote is currently expected to take place tomorrow, so calls are needed TODAY.
CALL TO ACTION
- Call on our Senators to VOTE NO on the motion to proceed on AHCA. Ask them to listen to their constituents, who favor fixing Obamacare far and above over fixing AHCA. Tell them to place people over politics and work on solutions that don’t cut Medicaid and work toward affordable health care for all.
