TUESDAY 4/4/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
LOSING PROTECTIONS FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS IS NOT AN OPTION.
THE GOP IS AT IS AGAIN, AND THIS TIME, WE NEED TO STOP THEM FOR GOOD.
On Monday, Vice President Pence met with the "House Freedom Caucus" to discuss new ways the GOP can gut ObamaCare and replace it with what experts are calling, something worse:
"Allowing states to opt out of essential health benefits could also hurt sicker people because while they can still buy a plan, it may not cover some of the services they need such as prescription drugs or hospitalization. They might have to pay extra for those services.
The changes will likely be made to the original repeal bill introduced earlier this year, the American Health Care Act. It was pulled from the floor last month because it lacked the support needed to pass" (The Hill).

Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling to add my name to the sea of voices in our state who support the Affordable Care Act and REJECT the plan to replace it.
Reapealing and Replacing" ObamaCare is a playing politics with people's lives. What we need is an honest and fair improvement of the current laws. It was reported today that Vice President Pence met with the House Freedom Caucus to revive plans for a new Health Care Bill. What was reported indicates that changes to the bill would make it even worse. I believe strongly that protections for those with pre-existing conditions was one of the best protections of the Affordable Care Act.
I am calling on you to reject a new Health Bill and instead focuses on positive changes to the existing law. I care deeply about this issue, and many Americans' health and lives are at stake.
