Congress Votes on Our Healthcare

UPDATE: Congress delayed the vote because they are 10 votes short. Keep up the pressure! They are going to try voting again today, March 24.

This is the moment of truth for healthcare. If we lose, we lose 50 years of progress in American healthcare.

If the new healthcare bill becomes law, 14 million fewer people will have health insurance next year.

Two simple steps to take today:

1. Call Congress at (866) 426-2631 and stop this bill from going any further.
2. Post this number to your social media accounts and ask that 5 friends make the call.

The ACA brought health coverage to over five million Californians. This includes 4 million who are newly eligible for Medi-Cal coverage and over 1 million Californians who are getting assistance to afford individual insurance through Covered California.

If the leadership in Congress has their way, March 23 will become the date they vote for the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and repeal the ACA. This would undo 50 years of progress on health coverage with a proposal to cut and cap the Medi-Cal program that a third of our state relies on. The 14 million Californians in Medi-Cal would be facing a 25 percent cut within a decade.

If you have never called your representatives before, this is the week to start. Every California Congress member should hear our strong opposition to this bill. Call your Congress member and tell them that voting for this bill will cost American lives and cost them their jobs.

We need your voice leading up to this generation-defining vote. All eyes will be on California Congress members as their decision may determine the fate of this disastrous proposal.
