Vote “NO” on the Graham-Cassidy legislation to repeal and replace ACA

A Message from Sr. Carol Keehan, DC:

The Senate is expected to vote next week on legislation introduced by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) & Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and restructure the Medicaid program. I urge you to contact your Senators today and tell them to:

  • Vote “NO” on the Graham-Cassidy legislation to repeal and replace ACA—which eliminates Medicaid expansion coverage, premium tax credits, and cost-sharing reduction subsidies and replaces them with state block grants.
  • Oppose the complete restructuring and deep funding reductions to the Medicaid program in the bill—capping & cutting federal Medicaid funding, through both per capita caps and block grants, fundamentally undermines the health care safety net and our ability to serve beneficiaries.
  • Instead enact bipartisan legislation to stabilize the individual insurance market.
