The U.S. Senate has announced their plan to fast-track the American Health Care Act (AHCA), a bill which aims to repeal large portions of the Affordable Care Act. We have a short window to make an impact. This legislation is a political and moral travesty, that will not only strip health insurance from 23 million Americans and end vital consumer protections, but will also make health care increasingly unaffordable and inequitable for millions currently benefiting from life-saving coverage provided by the Affordable Care Act.
Please join us June 22, 2017 for a White Coat Fly-in. Now, more than ever, Senators need to hear from providers and healthcare professionals who care for patients directly affected by this harmful legislation. Make your voice heard at a press event with Congressman Raul Ruiz, and then join us for meetings with key Senators.
This is not a drill. Congress is closer than ever before to repealing the ACA. It is now or never for physician advocates to speak up. All the work we have done together to this point— our numerous phone calls and LTEs, petitions and marches— have always been in service of patients over politics. Our concerted efforts to oppose the AHCA will not only send a strong message to Congress, but will also send a strong message to our patients, that we will tirelessly fight for them and for the affordable, accessible, quality care that they deserve.
Join us at this crucial moment to protect our patients, for whom this coverage is a lifeline. We look forward to linking arms and elevating our voices with you in Washington, D.C. on June 22nd.
