Message from  Executive Director
Walter X. Kalman

Thanks to all of you who did a great job in saving the Affordable Care Act during the first challenge to this law.
The second challenge offers a worse replacement for the ACA than the first. However, the Trump administration has expressed a desire to move on to other issues if this version does not succeed in Congress.  Therefore, this must be stopped now.
No doubt the administration will continue to work on other  goals that will pose more challenges ahead. But is critical that today, you help to stop this horrendous replacement for the Affordable Care Act.
Please make calls today! Please join the rally tomorrow!
In these times, ACTION IS OUR VOICE, so speak up now!
