Act Now: Urge Your Senators to Reject Efforts to Gut Health Care

Have you heard the news? The U.S. Senate is barreling toward a vote on a health care bill that would strip coverage for millions of Americans. What’s worse, this legislation has been drafted in secret, without adequate time for analysis, public debate, or even the opportunity for all lawmakers to read the bill.

AAUW believes that everyone deserves high-quality, affordable, and accessible health care. A repeal of the Affordable Care Act would eradicate years of progress in expanding health care access for women, including increasing out-of-pocket costs, causing premiums to skyrocket, eliminating coverage for Essential Health Benefits like maternity care, and gutting Medicaid.

We need all hands on deck to stop this dangerous effort from advancing. Call your senators now and ask them to protect Americans’ health care!

To reach your senators, dial (202) 224-3121 now and ask the switchboard operator to connect you. The message is simple:

My name is NAME and I am calling from CITY, STATE. As your constituent, I urge you to reject the American Health Care Act and any other effort that reduces access or does not provide the same level and quality of health care coverage for women and families.

Kevin, your voice is crucial to this debate. Pick up the phone – or send an email –  and urge your senators to protect our health care now!

    Our Revolution
    Kevin,
    Republicans in the Senate want to keep the American people in limbo by keeping their version of the American Health Care Act secret. Right now, Mitch McConnell and his Senate colleagues are putting together a bill that could force people to go without necessary health care in order to give huge tax breaks to the insurance industry.
    We deserve to know how much the Republican plan will increase our premiums, deductibles, and copayments, how many people will lose coverage, and what impact the $800 billion cut to Medicaid will have on those suffering from the ongoing opioid epidemic. We demand health care for those who lack coverage at this very moment, and the ones who might lose coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
    The House passed their version of the so-called American Health Care Act without a score from the CBO, but we now know that 23 million people will lose coverage if it passes. That’s not to mention the millions more who will be priced out of affording prescriptions and other vital components of health care, all so the very wealthiest can receive yet another tax cut. Call your senator today and tell them to stop the American Health Care Act. We need to start over with a plan that covers everybody.
    We are fighting for universal coverage under a Medicare for All, single payer system that cuts the insurance industry out of the equation. In a single payer system, the monthly premium is the only time the patient is charged. Medical bankruptcy due to terminal illness would be a thing of the past, and the price gouging of the pharmaceutical industry would be stopped. It’s time for the United States to join the UK, Canada, France, and every other major country—all of which guarantee healthcare as a right to all of their people.
    Republicans in the Senate are beholden to the very industries that they are attempting to regulate. As a result, our health care access is in the hands of corporations who are looking to cash out every time a patient needs prenatal care, chemotherapy, and any other treatment.
    Republicans want to take away health care from millions of people by passing the American Health Care Act. Please call your senator and tell them to stop their secret health care repeal and start over with a plan guaranteed to cover everybody.
    We are getting closer than ever to achieving real universal coverage. A majority of the American people support universal coverage. While that opinion may not be reflected in the Senate, remember that they answer to us. Please call them today.
    In solidarity,
    Shannon Jackson
