Right now, Congress is rushing to pass sweeping legislation that fits every definition of an unjust law — the American Health Care Act.
The consequences of gutting key provisions of health care are staggering. Millions of racial/ethnic minorities, poor whites, rural families, senior citizens, children, and women who now have affordable health insurance will lose it due to Medicaid cuts. Premiums and out-of-pocket expenses will spiral out of control for millions of working Americans. Medicare for our seniors will be one step closer to ending as we know it.
Join us Tuesday night at 8 p.m. EST for a strategy call with Rev. Jennifer Butler and Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, president and senior lecturer of Repairers of the Breach and leader of the Moral Mondays movement, to outline steps we can take right away to protect our neighbors and our nation from suffering and privation. We need to mobilize now, and this call is the first step.
This healthcare bill is not a Republican versus Democrat issue. The attack on poor and vulnerable children, families and seniors is an issue of morals — right versus wrong. We cannot stand idly by as extremists in Congress and the administration further enrich the wealthiest few at the expense of the sick, the poor and working people.
Together we can awaken our nation’s moral conscience. Sign up for the call here.
This one-hour call is sponsored by a broad range of faith groups, including Faith in Public Life, Repairers of the Breach, Red Letter Christians, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, Skinner Leadership Institute, National Council of Churches of Christ, T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights.
