TAKE ACTION NOW!!  CONGRESS WILL VOTE ON THE NEW VERSION OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT THIS WEEK!

TAKE ACTION BY 1) CALLING 2) FAX FOLLOW UP 3) EMAIL FOLLOW UP


Suggested format for Congressmen and Senators:


 Congressman ____________,  (or Senator______________)

 

As your Mississippi constituent, I am writing to request that you vote NO to the newest version of the Affordable Care Act that will be coming before Congress. 

This legislation will:

1)  Discriminate against older adults, and anyone with a pre-existing condition by charging significantly higher premiums

2)  Change essential health benefits to reduce insurance coverage for women's healthcare, mental healthcare, and substance abuse services.

3)  Will return to imposing Annual and Lifetime limits on coverage

4)  End Medicaid expansion that covers millions of people

5)  Does not provide any new benefit for States, as they already have flexibility in creating programs that are unique for their populations.

6)  ALLOWS MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND THEIR STAFF TO BE EXEMPT FROM THESE REQUIREMENTS, AND MAINTAIN SEPARATE,

MORE SUBSTANTIAL PLANS AT OUR EXPENSE.

It is shameful that Congress considers itself  above the American people, deserving better healthcare benefits at taxpayer- MY- expense.

It is shameful that the United States of America is last on the list of developed countries in the world that does not provide quality, affordable healthcare for its people.  We can and MUST do better!

I ask that you vote NO on this and any other legislation that will not provide quality, affordable healthcare for Mississippians and the American people.     I also ask that you announce your position and your vote on this matter to your constituents.

Thank you,

 

I’m a Voter
