American Health Care Act
Right now, the Senate is working on language for a health care bill that would cut billions of dollars in Medicaid and put low-income and vulnerable people at risk, of again, having to make the terrible choice between purchasing food or medicine. Call your senators (800-826-3688) and urge them to reject the American Health Care Act and any cuts to Medicaid.
Every senator needs to hear from their constituents, but these six U.S. senators will be key in this process. If you live in any of the following states, we especially need you to make calls urging them to protect Medicaid and reject the American Health Care Act:
Arizona: Sen. Jeff Flake
Alaska: Sen. Lisa Murkowski
Louisiana: Sen. Bill Cassidy
Maine: Sen. Susan Collins
Ohio: Sen. Rob Portman
Pennsylvania: Sen. Pat Toomey
