ALL IN TO FIGHT TRUMPCARE

Sen. Mitch McConnell is planning to force a vote on repealing and replacing the ACA, and I’m going ALL IN to fight it.

McConnell calls this a “skinny repeal,” meaning only 15 million people will lose their insurance when they eliminate the individual requirement to sign up for the Affordable Care Act. Only 15 million!

Even that will cause insurance rates to skyrocket and premiums to go up an average of $1,200, as younger and healthier people drop their insurance.

I’ve introduced more than 100 amendments to stand up for our health care. My colleagues have introduced hundreds more. While every family will suffer from their disastrous plan, these amendments will force Republicans to acknowledge the devastating impacts repealing the ACA will have on some of the most vulnerable Americans, including:

And the list goes on….

Republicans need to face the damage that would be done to the lives of millions of Americans. Are you with me?

Chip in now to join our fight and protect health care for all Americans!

Onward!

Jeff
