Kids can’t speak out for themselves but YOU can help make their voices heard through Children’s Action Alliance.
Here is our latest action alert:
Congress is rushing to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with no guarantee that people in Arizona will have protections for pre-existing conditions or access to quality, affordable health insurance. This would leave children, seniors and people with disabilities at risk, knowing that they may have to stop critical treatments such as cancer care and prescription drugs.
Lawmakers could vote as soon as January to repeal the Affordable Care Act. That’s why we need you to email our Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake TODAY, asking them to vote NO on repealing the ACA until there is a replacement plan that shows Arizonans how they will get affordable health coverage. Simply go to the websites, fill in the contact forms and feel free to use this pre-written message and send. Your email will go directly to Arizona’s senators right away. Please forward this email on to your networks!
You may copy and paste the message below:
I ask you to protect children, seniors, and people with disabilities. Please insist on a specific health care plan that will assure we have the security of affordable health insurance before you vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
We’re counting on you to stand up against the usual Washington tactics. Arizonans deserve to know exactly what is in a replacement plan and see proof that it will provide better, more affordable care, coverage, and consumer protections BEFORE any repeal.
Our own state healthcare leaders say that a repeal with a delay could take billions of dollars out of Arizona’s economy, throwing our health care sector into chaos, threatening the survival of rural hospitals, wiping out jobs, and leaving entrepreneurs and small businesses at high risk.
Please vote No on any repeal of the Affordable Care Act without a simultaneous replacement.
