The health care bill is back and worse than ever. Speak up for Maine kids now!
The Harmful Health Care Bill is Back:
Call Your Representative Today!
April 27, 2017
The U.S. House of Representatives is planning another vote on the harmful new health care bill as early as TOMORROW! While the original bill was bad enough, the new version of the bill is even worse. The American Health Care Act already makes dramatic cuts to Medicaid funding and threatens the health of Maine's most vulnerable citizens.
Please contact your representative in Congress today and tell them to oppose the American Health Care Acts and the new amendments.
Under this bill, Congress would:
repeal the ACA's Essential Health Benefits requirement (which include maternity care and care of substance abuse disorders);
allow discrimination for pre-existing conditions;
force states to rollback eligibility and benefits, harming children in low-income households;
cause millions of people to lose health care;
increase out-of-pocket costs;
and force states to make massive cuts to their budgets.
Fortunately, there is still time to act. Tell your U.S. House Member to oppose the new health care bill.
