In fact, congressional Republicans have taken the first step toward rushing through a repeal of the ACA in a budget resolution without proposing a replacement.
Please join the National Interfaith Call-In Day on Monday, Jan. 9, to protect healthcare for vulnerable people by calling 1-888-897-9753. (This is not a toll-free number but allows our partners at NETWORK to track the number of calls received at each office.) Call twice to be connected to both your senators, and tell them to vote NO on Senate Concurrent Resolution 3.
A sample script for your call:
“Hi, my name is [NAME], and I am a constituent from [CITY/TOWN]. As a person of faith, I believe that healthcare is a basic human right. Please ask the Senator to oppose any repeal of the Affordable Care Act unless there is a viable replacement to ensure that millions of Americans continue to receive affordable, quality healthcare. Please vote NO on Senate Concurrent Resolution 3 (S.Con.Res.3).”
Analysts have projected that more than 20 million Americans could lose health care coverage with repeal of the Affordable Care Act. You can read more here.
