Tell Your Senator: Don't Strip 24 Million Americans Of Their Health Care
- by: AFL-CIO
- target: Your U.S Senator
24 million people. That's how many will have their health care ripped away from them should the Senate vote to repeal the landmark Affordable Care Act (ACA) by passing a new, damaging health care bill known as "Trumpcare."
This isn't an anonymous number, it represents mothers and fathers, friends, children – maybe even you. All of these people will lose health care just to give tax breaks to the wealthiest 1%.
Last month, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other Republican extremists in Congress passed this cruel health care bill. Now, "Trumpcare" is being fast-tracked through the Senate where negotiations are being held behind closed doors; hidden from the American people.
If passed by the Senate, the bill would eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions, take away health care from tens of millions of people, raise health care costs for millions more, decimate Medicaid and give a huge tax break to the super-rich and corporate CEOs, while taxing workplace health benefits.
Families will be left without access to the doctors and medicine they've come to rely on since the Affordable Care Act passed.
The time to act is now. There are reports that Republican Senate leadership is pushing to hold a floor vote on "Trumpcare" before Congress leaves for the July 4 recess. We must hold our leaders accountable.
Sign the petition now to tell your U.S. Senator to oppose the Republican's dangerous health care plan and defend the Affordable Care Act.

Subject Line: Oppose efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act
You must oppose the American Health Care Act, which would repeal the Affordable Care Act and gut our health care.
Repealing the ACA would be a disaster for working people like me. The bill that passed the House would eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions, take away healthcare from tens of millions of people, raise health care costs for millions more, decimate Medicaid and give a huge tax break to the super-rich and corporate CEOs, while taxing workplace health benefits.
We need a health care plan that expands coverage for everyone, not one that cuts it.
As your constituent, as I as you to vote against the American Health Care Act.
