URGENT: Call Your Senator to Oppose New Health Care Repeal Bill

After so many failed attempts to gut health care, the Republican leadership can't seem to help itself: They've introduced yet another health care repeal bill, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Republicans have been campaigning on "repeal and replace" for seven years, but they have never come up with an actual plan to replace the Affordable Care Act that improves access to health care. The new bill, called Graham-Cassidy, is the most shameful proposal yet.

This new health care repeal bill is being sold as a compromise. It isn't. Instead, it’s worse than any of the other bills health care opponents have tried to pass in the last year. It raises costs, gets rid of protections for people with pre-existing conditions, drastically changes how our entire health care system works, and eliminates coverage for millions of Americans.

"Senate Republicans are trying to push through the Graham-Cassidy bill that would make our health care system much worse for working families," said CWA President Chris Shelton in a statement. "It would cut protections for people with pre-existing conditions and allow insurance companies to make their health care so expensive that ordinary Americans couldn’t afford it. It would put an 'age tax' in place, requiring older Americans to pay thousands of dollars more, it would make health care bargaining much more difficult, and it would slash the Medicaid program."

Repeal is on a deadline and health care opponents know it. They want to ram this bill through the Senate by September 30th, so they can pass it using legislative tricks.
