While we tend to focus on state and local issues, in today’s political environment, our access to affordable healthcare depends on the goodwill of Congress. For that reason, we have the following the ask:
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions are at risk. As stated in a letter to House leaders, the American Medical Association (AMA) is urging Congress to oppose the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and the MacArthur Amendment because it would result in millions of Americans losing their health care coverage and could make coverage unaffordable for people with pre-existing conditions.
Here in North Carolina we are hoping Senators Tillis and Burr will fight to protect the protections granted under the ACA that Americans worked so hard to get.
If your family will be negatively impacted by the repeal of the ACA, and specifically the passage of the amended AHCA, we want to share your story with Senators Tillis and Burr. We’d also love to share a picture of you and/or your family to make them see how this legislation hurt REAL North Carolinians.
We understand how sensitive these stories are and are sadden to have to ask. Unfortunately, the current leadership in Washington is leaving us no choice but to be bold with our most private information.
If you are interested in sharing, please submit your story and/or photo here.
