LWVK ACTION ALERT
Read what LWVUS President Chris Carson said about House of Representatives passing the American Health Care Act:
“This bill is anything but American —
it abandons the American values of fairness, community, and concern for all —
and it certainly won’t provide health care for all.
This legislation only serves to benefit special interests and provide tax cuts for the rich,
while leaving everyday Americans without access to affordable, quality health care.”
If this legislation becomes law:
- 24 million Americans will lose coverage by 2020
- Medicaid patients will no longer be able to get the care they need
- Women will go back to paying more than men for basic care
We know the Affordable Care Act is not perfect, but it has successfully provided health care coverage to tens of millions of Americans who previously went without.
The League of Women Voters is dedicated to ensuring access to affordable, quality health care for all Americans. We urge the Senate to reject this legislation.
It’s your turn to make your voice heard.
Here’s how to easily call or email your Senators today to tell them we need a plan that reflects true American values.
