CALL NOW: Dangerous Healthcare Bill

A small group of Republican senators have been working behind closed doors to take health care away from millions of American families. Details are starting to emerge and, like the horrible bill that recently passed the House, the Senate bill will radically cut Medicaid and undermine protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
They are trying to rush through a vote NEXT WEEK without any chance for public input or hearings. We can’t let that happen. Right now is the time for you to speak up.
This plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act is just cruel. It would slash and cap Medicaid, and as many as 24 million Americans of all stripes, including educators and their families, will lose their care or find themselves suddenly unable to afford coverage. They will create all of this suffering while giving massive tax cuts to the extraordinarily wealthy.
Please make a call today. Senators have told us their phones aren’t ringing, even with a vote rapidly approaching on a bill that would make such a huge difference in the lives of millions. Your senators need to hear from you. Our students, educators, and communities are depending on us to stop this.
