GOP Healthcare Proposal Would Harm California Seniors
Attention Aging Advocates,
Repeal and Replace is back on the Trump agenda.
Please see the 2 Calls to Action below from our partners, Justice In Aging.
Although we fought back against recent efforts in Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with the American Health Care Act (AHCA), leaders in Congress say they will continue their efforts to pass a health care bill that would eliminate coverage for 24 million individuals and gut Medicaid funding to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. This California-specific fact sheet spells out how older adults in California will be impacted by the harmful provisions in the AHCA.
Right now Congress is on a two-week recess, so you have the opportunity to tell members of Congress just how harmful these proposals are for older adults.
- Attend a Town Hall. Visit The Town Hall Project website and enter your zip code.
- Call Members of Congress at 202-224-3121. Ask to be connected to your Representative and tell them not to vote to repeal the ACA. Use the information on this sheet to tell them to stop trying to repeal and replace the ACA.
Older adults have a lot to lose if any one of the changes under the AHCA are successful, so let’s make sure Congress knows just how bad this is for seniors.
