I am thrilled to join Doctors for America at this critical moment for the health of our nation.
As I write to you, the U.S. Senate is attempting to sneak health repeal into their tax cut bill for the wealthy and big corporations. This repeal effort would rip coverage away from 13 million people, raise premiums by double digits and slash spending for Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP, Pell Grants, housing, transportation and virtually every other service that low-income families, the disabled, and seniors depend on. The bill would starve our communities, families, and neighbors, to pay for massive tax giveaways to the one percent. A vote may come as early as this week.
If we have learned anything over the last year, it is that having a strong and active physician advocacy organization is essential to our work and can be successful at stopping harmful actions by this Administration and Congress. Together, we have been able to block ACA repeal and stop devastating cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. We have had some big victories in the last year but our work is not over yet. We still need your support to fight this bill which could bring great harm to our patients.
Robert, -- on this Giving Tuesday, will you join Americans across the country in giving back to Doctors for America to help ensure we have the funds we need to fight for patients over politics in every corner of this country?
