The Senate is planning to vote next week on the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017. The bill would make health care less accessible and more expensive for millions and undermine and restrict access to Medicaid. Millions of Americans will lose health coverage and low-income people, the elderly, children, and people with disabilities will be hit particularly hard.
The so-called Better Care bill would reverse the enormous advancements that the Affordable Care Act has made in accessibility, cost, and quality of care. Any health care proposal must build on the ACA’s progress, not undercut it.
Urge your member of Congress to protect affordable health care and oppose Better Care Reconciliation Act or any legislation that makes it harder for individuals to access the care they need.
