Congress is taking steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act starting this week without a plan for the tens of millions of people relying on the law for coverage. Join advocates and allies from across the country in a national call-in TODAY telling Congress that the Affordable Care Act matters to Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities and to vote NO on repeal or cuts to Medicaid and Medicare.
1. Call: 866-426-2631
2. Ask to speak with the member’s health staff
3. Say: “As a constituent of [state], the Affordable Care Act matters to me. [Talk about what the law means to you. EX) You gained coverage, now have coverage you can count on, using free preventive care, now have coverage that is affordable, etc.]. I care about health care in my community and as such, ask that you vote NO to repeal the Affordable Care Act and vote NO against any plans that would cut Medicaid and Medicare. So many are relying on health coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act, and I’m concerned that we will lose the progress we’ve made if the Affordable Care Act is repealed without a strong replacement.”
Your voice matters to policy makers. Call your member of Congress and talk about what the Affordable Care Act means to you today!
