GOAL: Resist the efforts made by Republicans to take away health care for millions of Americans by lobbying our representatives in Congress and meeting with national partners in Washington, D.C. To read more about the ACA click here: https://tinyurl.com/yau5d7xu
DEADLINE: Thursday, July 20th
REASON: Senate Republicans release their “new” Obamacare repeal bill today. In short: wealthier, healthier people do better and everyone else does worse. The new bill still makes deep cuts to Medicaid, increases the cost of care, allows insurers to limit benefits, and will cause millions of Americans to lose badly needed health insurance.We must continue to resist these efforts to take our health care away.
