Make your voice heard in DC!


Last week, the Senate released their long-anticipated health care reform legislation.  After an initial review of the bill, our concerns were confirmed as it maintains many of the same harmful provisions we opposed in the U.S. House of Representative’s American Health Care Act (AHCA).  We fear this bill will put affordable, quality health insurance out of reach for the women and men we represent.

A vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act could happen immediately after the July 4th recess.  Now is the time to call Senators and urge them to oppose this bill as it is currently written.

Here is what to do:

Call your Senate Offices, numbers are provided below, as soon as possible.  Once you reach a staff person or voicemail system, use the following talking points to tell your story:

  • Request that the Senator vote AGAINST the Better Care Reconciliation Act
  • Convey that this legislation would increase the number of uninsured, eliminate standard benefits for the insured and put Medicaid in jeopardy for millions – including the 2 million cancer patients and survivors   that currently depend on the program
  • NOW is the time for the Senate to work together to ensure essential patient protections are preserved
  • Tell the office that as a constituent and BREAST CANCER survivor/activist you feel strongly that access to QUALITY, AFFORDABLE health care is vital for women and men impacted by breast cancer
