Stop the Senate’s Hidden Plan to Take Health Care from Millions

Beware of backroom deals that put health care at risk for millions. Right now, Senate leaders are working behind closed doors to draft a health care bill they believe will improve coverage and access. But it’s a Trojan Horse. They’ve taken the horrendous House bill and simply concealed it with cosmetic changes so that Americans don’t see the threat until it’s too late. Don’t be fooled – just like the House bill, this plan is disaster waiting to happen.

Call Your Senator TodayCALL BOTH YOUR SENATORS TODAY at (800) 826-3688 and say:

“I urge Senator ______________ to oppose any health bill that cuts or caps Medicaid or causes millions of Americans to lose their health insurance. Also, the American people should have time to read the bill, see how much it costs, and provide input before any vote.”

Just like the House bill, the Senate bill’s priorities are completely upside-down:

Put health care for 30 million low-income children – many with special needs – at risk? Check.
End the ACA’s Medicaid expansion that’s helped millions finally get insurance? Check.
Force states to find billions they don’t have to cover children, seniors, and people with disabilities? Check.
Allow insurance companies to once again impose coverage limits and deny coverage for pre-existing conditions? Check.
Give the wealthy and large corporations a $600 billion tax cut? Check.

Even if you’ve already called this week, call again. Share this alert with others you know and urge them to call too. Lives are at stake and we must do all we can to ensure health care for all Americans. 

Again, CALL BOTH YOUR SENATORS TODAY at (800) 826-3688 and say:

“I urge Senator ______________ to oppose any health bill that cuts or caps Medicaid or causes millions of Americans to lose their health insurance. Also, the American people should have time to read the bill, see how much it costs, and provide input before any vote.”
