Republicans plan #Takesgiving – Giving tax cuts to the rich while stripping millions of access to care!

Don’t be fooled. The new “tax reform” bill proposed by Republicans is another desperate attempt at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The bill favors corporations and the wealthy and would repeal the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act, making health care more expensive and kicking 13 million people off coverage. Worse, giving these tax cuts to the rich will increase the federal deficit and tighten the federal budget, paving the way for Republicans to initiate massive cuts to critical social safety net programs like Ryan White and Medicaid in the future.

The House of Representatives passed their bill last week and the Senate is moving quickly to try and pass their bill right after the Thanksgiving break.

Get the facts:

Take Action:

Tell your elected officials to oppose any bill that harms health coverage or safety net programs.

Call the Senate right now – every call counts! If you have trouble getting through, please keep trying until you are able to make your voice heard. Feel free to share a personal story about what would happen if you or your loved ones lost coverage. Here’s what you can say: 

Hello, my name is _______. I am calling to demand you stand up to efforts to make health care more expensive and less accessible while giving tax cuts to rich people. Don’t let them take health care away from 13 million of us – including people who voted for you and put their faith in you – during the holiday season. We deserve better. In fact, what we need are vocal champions for less expensive, quality health care that covers more people. You can do that by supporting the proposal to make Cost Sharing Reduction payments. Can we count on you?
