Action Alert - American Health Care Act - 3/10/17
Call Rep. King:
Rep. King - LI Office: (516) 541-4225
Rep. King - DC Office: (202) 225-7896
> Has Rep. King read the new GOP health bill? Is he supporting it? What concerns him about this bill?
> Does he support eliminating the mandate that covers basic mental health and addiction services?
> Does he realize that 1.3 million Americans receive treatment for mental-health and substance abuse disorders under the Medicaid expansion? Does he care that we have an opioid epidemic on LI?
> Will he vote for the bill, knowing that up to 10 million Americans could lose their coverage?
> Is a $600 billion tax cut for the wealthy worth it?
> Rep. King has repeatedly told us constituents that he supports Medicaid expansion. 800,000 New Yorkers are covered bc of Medicaid expansion. The new GOP bill would end the federal dollars sent to states to expand Medicaid and cap spending on the federal-state program for the needy at per-patient limits by 2020. What will he do about that?
> The ACA included 161 Republican amendments passed over 6 months, while the new GOP plan made it out of committee in 2 days with zero Democratic amendments, and with no CBO (congressional budget office) score!
Why the rush?!
> Can we count on Rep. King to put country before party and vote against the
American Health Care Act?
