Tell Your Senators: Block the AHCA
By far the biggest threat to
programs that serve the poor and vulnerable in the United States is the effort
now underway in the Senate to pass its own version of the American Health Care
Act. This bill — being written behind closed doors without any public
hearing — would roll back many of the gains in protections and coverage
achieved by millions of people through the Affordable Care Act.
It is morally unacceptable
to pass legislation that will result in millions of fewer Americans having
health insurance. It is morally unacceptable to kick millions of our
poorest citizens off of Medicaid.
Now is the time to
act. Call your Senators TODAY and let them know that our faith calls us
to protect and defend those whom Jesus called “the least of these.” Tell
them to oppose the Senate health care bill.
It's easy! Instructions:
- Call the Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
- Call the phone numbers listed below to be connected directly to your members’ offices.
- When the office answers, provide your comments on the budget. The staff member will take down your message and thank you for your call.
Good afternoon, my name is ___________, and I live in [name of your city and state].
I am calling to register my strong opposition to the
American Health Care Act, or to any legislation that would result in the loss
of coverage for my fellow neighbors.
As a Christian, my faith compels me to “care for
the sick.” The health care bill in it’s current form would make the lives
of the sick much worse. This legislation, which is being written in
secret without any public hearings or accountability, does not represent my
values. I urge the Senator to oppose this legislation and to encourage
other Senators to do the same.
