THIS IS IT! KEEP THE PRESSURE ON: Call your Senators TODAY and tell them to VOTE NO!

It has been a whirlwind in Washington as far as health care is concerned, but THIS IS IT! Despite what you may hear, the Senate’s attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and end Medicaid as we know it is NOT dead! Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues to negotiate with Republicans and could begin debate on a health care bill as early as Tuesday, July 24th. We must keep the pressure on and remind the Senate just how devastating the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) and a straight repeal of the ACA would be for children and families. The deeply harmful, deeply unpopular BCRA would end Medicaid as we know it — a lifeline for more than 37 million children, more than 40 percent of all children with special health care needs and more than 40 percent of all births — to pay for tax cuts for wealthy individuals and corporations. It would rip away health coverage from at least 22 million Americans, leave millions of Americans paying more for less health care, and undermine protections for children and adults with pre-existing conditions. The straight repeal of the ACA would leave 32 million more Americans without health insurance and decimate our health care system.

PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY! Tell them not to move backwards and undermine the critical Medicaid health care safety net or do away with the ACA’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions, the guarantee of a basic set of essential health benefits — like maternity coverage, mental health coverage and prescription drugs, or the prohibition of discrimination based on age, gender or health status.

Tell your Senators that no amendment can fix the Senate health care bill and urge them to VOTE NO on the Senate Health Care bill to #ProtectMedicaid and #KeepKidsCovered!
