Take Action! Help #KillTheBill! Call the HIV Hotline Today!

June 23, 2017

ISSUE: We are running out of time!  Senate Republicans plan to rush a vote on the catastrophically cruel American Health Care Act (AHCA, a.k.a. "Trumpcare") before the July 4 congressional recess. The bill is being drafted by a secretive committee of 13 white men; no Democrats in the Senate have even seen any of the language in the bill. The Senate GOP hopes that the public will remain so distracted with the Russia investigation and the other myriad daily crises of the White House to pay attention to their plan to strip tens of millions of people of their health care coverage. The good news is there are several Republicans in the Senate representing states that expanded Medicaid who are hesitant to support a bill that would decimate coverage for hundreds of thousands in their states. Now is the time to push hard and let them know that we expect them to protect our care, and will hold them accountable if they don't. We need to call them every single day.
