Thanks to your unwavering efforts, we #KilledtheBill. But it is not over yet!  Senate leadership is resorting to a last ditch nuclear option to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without a replacement, which will do even more harm. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote for early next week on the ACA Repeal bill that would:

  • End Medicaid expansion and all premium tax credits and cost sharing subsidies while ending the individual mandate;
  • Leave 18 million Americans uninsured during the first year it takes effect;
  • Leave 32 million Americans uninsured by 2026;
  • Increase premiums by 25% within the first year and 100% by 2026.

Our senators need to keep hearing from us! Call 866-246-9371 to reach your senators. Even if you called before, please call again! You can tell them:

“My name is _____ and I live in [city, zip]. I’m a person [living with/concerned about] HIV and I’m calling to urge Senator ____ not to take health insurance away from 32 million Americans, including many living with HIV, by supporting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act without a replacement bill.  Vote No on ACA Repeal.”

We know we have asked you to do a lot over the last several months. You called Congress time and again to tell them to #KillTheBill. And it worked!

We CANNOT let up. We CANNOT stop pushing. We must continue to #RESIST if we are to #ProtectOurCare and #KillRepeal. Please call TODAY!
