Action: Ditch the latest ACA repeal bill.
A last-ditch effort to repeal the ACA has surfaced in the Senate. Call your Senators today and tell them to defeat the Graham-Cassidy bill.
Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621 or (206) 553-5545
Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441 or (206) 220-6400
“I am calling to express my extreme concern about the attempt to repeal the ACA via the Graham-Cassidy bill. This bill would undermine the stability of the health insurance market under the ACA, and it deprives low-income consumers of important health care insurance funding. Please work with your Senate colleagues to defeat this bill.”
This bill would turn over funding from the ACA to the states in a block grant. It would remove tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies that form the foundation of the ACA benefits to low- and middle-income consumers. It would cancel the individual mandate for health insurance while mandating that insurances companies cover everyone, which has typically resulted in ballooning health insurance premiums.
