Senate Votes on GOP Repeal Bill

Posted on February 2nd, 2011 by HCAN California in Action

Believe it or not — Senate Republicans have tacked on an amendment to the aviation bill that would ┬árepeal the entire Affordable Care Act. This is an outrage!

Thankfully, California Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein have long been dedicated champions of health care reform — understanding the importance of what the new law means for countless Californians, and the absolute necessity of opposing efforts to “repeal and replace!”

Call Senators Boxer and Feinstein NOW and show your support for their continued commitment in defending the Federal health care law against Republican and corporate repeal-mongers!

This isn’t a theoretical debate or a symbolic vote. Senate Republicans are voting to take away real protections that are helping millions of people right now. If Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans are serious about repealing the Affordable Care Act, they should tell their constituents the truth about the cost-savings and consumer protections they want to take away.

Each of them should go door to door in their districts and tell thousands of seniors to cough up the $250 donut-hole checks they received from the new health care law to buy their prescription drugs; visit with parents of sick children who finally got coverage and tell them their insurance is now canceled; and meet with parents of young adults and let them know that they’ll have to drop their young adults from their health insurance!
