On May 4, 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act, which repeals major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and makes severe cuts to the Medicaid program. If enacted into law, this bill would be devastating to health care in Massachusetts and throughout the country. Nationally, this bill would result in 23 million people losing coverage, up to 445,000 in Massachusetts alone.

Please contact your friends and family who live in the states listed below, and ask them to call their Senators!

Tell them what is at stake if this bill passes, and direct them to www.savemycare.org

There they just have to click the "Call Your Senator" box, enter their zip code and phone number. The system connects them directly to their Senators' offices, and provides them with instructions and suggested talking points. Or, they can call (866) 426-2631 directly and ask to be connected to their Senator(s).
