The disastrous plan to cut healthcare coverage for millions so the wealthiest can get a tax break is headed back to the Senate floor for a vote. It's time to raise our voices together and demand our elected representatives vote NO on the "Better Care Reconciliation Act" (BCRA).
Tomorrow, call toll-free at 866-426-2631. Tell them you will not stand for 22 million people losing insurance and cuts to Medicaid for children, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and people suffering with substance use and mental health conditions.
We know our Senators in California oppose this reprehensible bill. Both Senator Harris and Senator Feinstein have said it's still helpful for them to hear from you, especially if you have a story about how the Affordable Care Act has helped you or your family. You may also be transferred to a member of the House who will have to vote on this bill.
Already called? Please forward this to friends and family members and urge them to call, too!
Key Messages for Calls: Ask your the elected representative to commit to vote “no” on the Better Care Reconciliation Act and any proposal that:
Ends the Medicaid expansion at any point in time
Destroys the Medicaid program as we know it by changing the structure through per capita caps or block grants
Increases the number of people without health insurance
Undermines protections for people with pre-existing conditions
Don’t forget to share your story of how you, your loved ones, and your community would be affected if Congress cuts Medicaid and repeals the Affordable Care Act. See a sample call script to help you contact your senators, courtesy of Families USA.
