Protect the Affordable Care Act!

Earlier this month, both the House and Senate passed 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 to express my disappointment with the FY 2017 budget resolution recently passed by the House and Senate that contained instructions to develop legislation to repeal this historic public health law. Any effort to repeal the ACA without ensuring a viable and immediate replacement plan is unconscionable and will put the health of the American people at an unacceptable risk.



I strongly urge you to support full implementation of the ACA and to oppose any efforts to repeal or weaken this critical law.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
