The Senate is now considering the American Health Care Act (AHCA), legislation adopted by the House of Representatives on May 4 that would undo the enormous progress made in the last six years by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Over twenty million American stand to lose coverage if the AHCA passes, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. The AHCA fundamentally restructures Medicaid, putting low-income Americans and people with disabilities in particularly perilous circumstances. The AHCA eliminates the ACA’s coverage requirements for essential services like maternity and mental health care and removes protections for people with preexisting conditions. Urge your Senators to preserve the progress the ACA has made for millions of Americans.
