The Senate is rushing forward on a secretive overhaul of our healthcare system without holding any public hearings or listening to expert testimony. We don’t yet know all the details of this new bill, but Senate leaders are calling a vote within the next few weeks.
Lawmakers say the bill will be closely aligned with the American Health Care Act that passed the House just last month. Under that proposal, more than 23 million Americans would lose their health insurance. It also includes $880 billion in cuts to Medicaid, and raises everyone's insurance costs by an average of $1,500.
Take action now: tell your Senators we need a public and transparent process, not a rushed bill that raises prices and takes coverage away from millions of people.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
