Renewed Attempt to Repeal ACA: Call Your Senators to Today! Urge Rejection of  Graham-Cassidy Repeal Bill

Posted by Becky Martin, NPA Advocacy Director September 17, 2017 at 10:45 PM

Senators Graham (SC) & Cassidy (LA) are advancing a new ACA repeal bill and pressing for a vote in the Senate that would be devastating for patients and communities.

This ill-conceived bill:

  • Converts the Medicaid program to block grants with per capita caps
  • Ends Medicaid Expansion
  • Punished people with Pre-Existing Conditions
  • Eliminates subsidies that help moderate income people afford coverage
