ACTION ALERT: Health Vote Could Happen TOMORROW
Posted April, 27 2017 by Amanda Dunker
Yesterday, an important group of Republicans endorsed a new version of the American Health Care Act. This makes it much more likely to pass. A vote could happen on this bill tomorrow or Saturday – New York’s members MUST hear from you today! CALL 1-844-898-1199 AND DEMAND THAT CONGRESS BLOCK THIS DEVASTATING BILL.
The original bill would have gutted Medicaid to pay for billions in tax cuts for millionaires and would have asked some Americans to pay more than they earn in a year for health insurance. Shockingly, the new bill is even worse. This time, they’re going after people with pre-existing conditions by letting states segregate them using high-risk pools, expensive programs that have failed again and again.
Keep calling 1-844-898-1199! It makes a difference – we saw it work in March! We want all members of Congress to hear from constituents, but it is especially important if you are represented by one of the following because we do not have promises from them to vote “no”:
John Faso (Hudson Valley)
Peter King (Long Island)
Elise Stefanik (Watertown and Saratoga Springs)
