New Study Finds Repeal of Health Care Law Would Damage Arizona’s Economy
Your efforts to reach out to Arizona senators John McCain and Jeff Flake to oppose a repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without a simultaneous solid replacement are working! Whether you have called or messaged them in the last month, Congress is holding off on repealing the ACA.
Here are two important new tools to help our delegation make the right decisions for Arizona. Children’s Action Alliance commissioned the W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU to study the specific economic impact in Arizona of repealing federal funding for the ACA. The results are stunning: wiping out 60,000 jobs and putting the brakes on our economic growth. The analysis shows that repeal will bring about something we’ve never seen in Arizona before: a health care recession.
Here is our latest fact sheet on why repealing without replacing the ACA is bad for Arizona families.
Congress will be on recess between February 20 – 24, so our senators and representatives will be back home in Arizona. Stay on the lookout for emails and alerts from us to give you an opportunity to reach out to them in person.
