League of Women Voters  Take Action

Dear Friend—
    
In the U.S. Senate, a small group of Senators are secretly working to make decisions that will cut coverage, raise rates and give the richest Americans tax breaks at the expense of everyone else.
  
Senate leadership is ignoring the needs of the American people. Now is the time to make your voice heard by calling or emailing your Senators today!
  
Legislation passed by the U.S. House to repeal and replace the ACA fails to reflect the American values of fairness, community and concern for all. It will cut coverage for 14million Americans in the next year, raise premiums by 20% and give nearly $700 billion to the wealthy and big corporations. The Senate is trying to force us down the same disastrous path, pushing to gut coverage for people with pre-existing conditions while doing long-term damage to Medicaid.
  
The Affordable Care Act is not perfect, but the path that congressional leadership has us on is bad for the well-being of millions of Americans. Tell your Senators that Americans deserve better.
  
Any bill that moves forward must do the following:
  • Guarantee that pre-existing conditions can’t be used to deny coverage or raise rates
  • Ensure health insurance rates and access do not discriminate against women
  • Provide coverage of preventive care, limit out of pocket costs and prohibit life-time insurance caps
  • Ensure that Medicaid recipients can continue to receive full health care services
      
It’s your turn to make your voice heard. Call or email your Senators today and let them know where you stand. We need a plan that reflects the American values of fairness, community, and concern for all. 
  
Sincerely

Chris Carson
President, LWVUS
