From Action NC:
Moments ago, Senate Republicans released the details of their plan to destroy the Affordable Care Act and take health coverage from millions of Americans. It’s just as bad as we thought it would be.
If this feels like déjà vu, you’re not far off.
Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr have been working with Republican leadership to draft a bill that would cut spending on health care to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy. Republicans in Congress plan to hold zero public hearings before they hold a final vote on their repeal bill, which we expect next week!
But we cannot let Senators Tillis and Burr fast-track a bill that could make more than 1 million North Carolinians uninsured. We need you to reach out to Senator Thom Tillis and Senator Richard Burr now to demand that they drop their secret bill to cut health care to pay for tax breaks.
Just take two minutes of your day, dial 1-866-426-2631, and use the script below to hold Tillis and Burr accountable.
What you can say when someone answers the phone:
Senate Republicans are drafting a secret bill to slash Medicaid and repeal the Affordable Care Act, and they will not share it with the public before they vote. As your constituent, I find this lack of transparency unacceptable. Share your secret bill with your constituents so we can evaluate it.
While we do not know details of your hidden bill, we ask you to do the following:
- Oppose any bill that caps or cuts Medicaid funding — over one million children and many seniors and people with disabilities in our state rely on it.
- Oppose any bill that would increase the number of uninsured in our state.
Instead of repealing the ACA, I want you to work to improve the current system.
Having trouble getting through? Here’s Senator Burr’s office number: 202-224-3154. And this is Senator Tillis’s number: 202-224-6342.
