This week, Republicans in the Senate introduced a fiscal year 2017 budget resolution that allows Congress to begin the process of attempting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Repealing the ACA would result in nearly 30 million Americans, including children, losing their health insurance coverage. It would also eliminate the Prevention and Public Health Fund, the mandatory funding stream that is providing critical resources to our state and local health departments to keep our communities healthy and safe from infectious disease, lead poisoning and tobacco-related diseases.
Send a message to your senators and representative and urge
them to support full implementation of the Affordable Care Act and to oppose
any efforts to repeal this historic public health law!
Protect the Affordable Care Act
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a constituent and American Public Health Association advocate, I write in strong support of the Affordable Care Act, and I urge you to oppose any legislation that would repeal this historic public health law.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
