> We will post an Action Alert every day this week. Please do as many as you can. Please write letters, make phone calls, write articles, tell your friends, and share these Action Alerts!


> Republican Senators are drafting a health care bill behind closed doors to steal health insurance from 23 million Americans to pass along tax cuts to their wealthiest friends.


> TrumpCare/AHCA will give Insurance Companies a $145 billion tax cut over the next decade. It will give millionaires an annual average tax cut of $50K, and an annual tax cut of $195K to the Top .1% of Americans!

> Meanwhile it will cut Medicaid spending by $880 billion – the LARGEST single reduction in a social insurance program in history. Pretty incredible that our Congressman, who vowed to fight for Medicaid for his constituents, voted YES!


> Despite the fact that TrumpCare would affect 1/6 of our economy and 23 million Americans, GOP Senators are trying to push the bill through in the most closed-door, secretive, dangerous approach to legislation that we have seen in decades. They are expected to vote on TrumpCare by the end of the month without any public hearings!


> A group of more than 15 patient groups including the American Heart Assn., the March of Dimes, the American Lung Assn., and the American Diabetes Assn. have recently asked to meet with McConnell, but his staff said he was too busy.



In NYS alone:


Average Premium Increase in 2018: $1,094

Even though we know our Senators are fighting Trumpcare, please call and thank them. Then ask if they are doing everything within their power, such as withholding consent on legislative business and offering as many amendments as it takes to get a hearing and a CBO score. See the attached draft script.
