Oppose the American Health Care Act

PLEASE ACT NOW: This is a fast moving train. The legislation was introduced on March 6th and voted out of two committees on March 9th. The Budget Committee will consider the AHCA on March 15th and a vote on the House floor is expected soon thereafter. 

CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TODAY,Your voice matters NOW! Please call your representative and urge them to protect health care, especially for women and families, by voting NO on the American Health Care Act..

Step 1:Locate your representative here.

Step 2: Tell your representative:
My name is [your name] and I am calling from [your city/state and, if applicable, your organization].

I urge you to oppose the American Health Care Act.

Sample Talking Points:

  • Don't repeal the Affordable Care Act! It provides affordable, accessible, quality health coverage for millions of people.
  • The American Health Care Act is not a viable, comprehensive replacement plan for the ACA. lt would:
  • Eliminate the essential health benefits requirement for low income people who gained coverage through Medicaid expansion under the ACA. This would roll back access to maternal health care, preventative care, and other important health benefits for people who otherwise cannot afford health coverage.
  • Roll back federal funding for Medicaid, shift the burden to states, and effectively terminate the Medicaid expansion program for low-income adults.
  • Restrict access to the full range of reproductive health services and repeal funding for Planned Parenthood by excluding them from the Medicaid program.
  • Eliminate the ACA exemption from financial penalties for survivors of domestic violence whose coverage lapses.
  • Repeal the individual mandate and many of the taxes that support the ACA, essentially gutting the ACA.

[Add additional concerns, or your personal story]

Please vote NO on the American Health Care Act when it comes to the House floor!

Step 3: Share this action alert with your networks, allies, and constituents.

Step 4: Let us know you've acted by emailing Advocacy@ywcapgh.org.

Step 5: Share your concerns on social media, using #ACA. Tweet directly at your representative! Fewer than 50 tweets from constituents can make a difference - your voice counts.
