Access to health care is under attack.
Congress is in the process of repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the new Trump Administration has issued an executive order against the law. Today, Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) introduced a bill they claim would partially replace the Affordable Care Act, but would not fully protect the coverage gains and consumer protections millions of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders in all states are relying on. The Affordable Care Act remains the law, but Congress is trying to repeal it.
Join advocates and allies from across the country in a national call-in TOMORROW, January 24 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to the Affordable Care Act, and I’m concerned that we will lose the progress we’ve made if the Affordable Care Act is repealed without a strong replacement.”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!
