The U.S. House plans to vote tomorrow to end the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he will call the GOP bill (American Health Care Act) for a Senate floor vote next week, if the bill passes the House of Representatives. And President Trump said he will sign the bill into law. That means by the end of next week health care reform as we know it will be dismantled.
Immediate action is needed to stop the bill and save health care for 24 million Americans, including many living with and vulnerable to HIV.
Call (866) 246-9371 to connect directly with your Representative. Here is what you can say:
Hello my name is _______ and I live in [city & state]. I am a person [living with HIV /concerned about HIV]. I am calling to demand that you vote against the American Health Care Act. The American Health Care Act will hurt people living with and vulnerable to HIV by making it harder and more expensive to get the care they need. All Americans deserve better. I urge you to support people living with and vulnerable to HIV and oppose the American Health Care Act.
