League of Women Voters  Take Action

  
Dear Friend:

The U.S. Senate has finally unveiled their legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act—and it is even worse than the version we saw from the U.S. House.

This is a nasty bill that will hurt millions of Americans and it is time to stand up and urge your Senators to reject it.

The "Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017" will cut coverage and raise costs for millions of Americans while giving a huge tax break to the wealthiest individuals and large corporations. The cuts to Medicaid will be massive and will destroy the system that so many Americans rely on.

Tell your Senators this legislation is not worthy of this great nation.

Written in secret, by a few select Senators from one political party, this bill will leave millions of Americans without health insurance. If this backroom bill passes it will fundamentally change the way laws are passed in America. Transparency and openness in the legislative process are important because they improve the final product and this bill clearly has the deep flaws that result from its secret drafting.

Senate leadership is counting on pushing this legislation through without public input because they fear what we might discover. Don’t let secret legislation that threatens the lives of millions of Americans become the law of the land. Call your Senators today!

Yours in the fight,

Chris Carson
President, LWVUS
