Call or email your senators and tell them to improve the ACA!! The House Bill is not acceptable!!

We deserve to have affordable health care. While we have negotiated health care now, added cost to health care could have an impact at the bargaining table in the future.

Friday March 24th - The House of Representatives did not have enough votes to pass the AHCA so it has been pulled back for now. Stay alert for future actions on health care legislation.

Call your U.S. Representative - 866-202-5409

Whether your health insurance is through your work, Medicare, Medicaid or individual insurance, the new proposal speeding through Congress (American Health Care Act or AHCA) will impact you. A vote is scheduled for this Thursday. Make sure you understand what’s at stake – then tell your Representative how you feel.

It's all about the money! The new proposed health care legislation will do nothing for the citizens of the United States. Premiums will increase and less people will be insured.

The real issue is the out of control costs of medication, hospitals, medical offices and doctors.
