CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TODAY! Oppose Affordable Care Act Repeal Bill That Would Strip Healthcare from Millions

NLIHC Call to ActionCall your Members of Congress and tell them to vote against the American Health Care Act that would cause 24 million people to lose health insurance and would cut Medicaid funding for supportive housing services that benefit people experiencing homelessness. After failing to secure enough support to pass the legislation yesterday, House leaders pushed back the votes until today, Friday, March 24.

H.R. 1628, The American Health Care Act of 2017, would eliminate important aspects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – including coverage of prescription drugs, maternity care, and mental health services. H.R. 1628 would also roll back Medicaid expansion and allow states to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients. These changes would be devastating for low income households, especially homeless individuals receiving supportive services through Medicaid.

The bill’s passage or defeat could come down to just a handful of moderate Republicans. It is critical that advocates call their members of Congress today – especially moderate Republicans who previously opposed the bill – to urge them to vote against H.R. 1628.

The target Congressional districts are:

  • AK-01     Young 
  • AZ-02     McSally 
  • CA-08     Cook 
  • CA-10     Denham 
  • CA-21     Valadao
