ACA Needs to Stay, Sign the Petition Today!!

In the midst of a global pandemic, undermining our nation’s health care system could mean the difference between life and death for everyday Arizonans. Over the past few months, Children’s Action Alliance has been closely monitoring action in a federal lawsuit that could overturn all or some of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA provides Americans with critical protections, rights, and options when it comes to our health care. The case, now named California v. Texas, has been escalated to the US Supreme Court. Opening briefs will be filed beginning next month and oral arguments will likely occur in the fall of this year.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is arguing to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Brnovich acted alone when he joined Arizona in the lawsuit that threatens the health of our economy and Arizona families. Twenty million Americans stand to lose their health coverage if Attorney General Brnovich and the other plaintiffs are successful in proving the ACA is unconstitutional. In Arizona, over 2.8 million people have a pre-existing condition. Nearly 63,000 school-aged children and over 3,100 former foster youth have health coverage today, thanks to provisions of the ACA.

We urge Attorney General Brnovich to withdraw Arizona from the California v. Texas lawsuit. We need you to lend your voice and sign our petition urging withdrawal from the suit.

Our lives are on the line. Tell Attorney General Brnovich to pull out of this harmful, reckless lawsuit today. Share this petition and your story using the hashtag #AZNeedsTheACA.
