Click here to call your Representative right now and tell them to vote “NO” on the GOP’s plan to take healthcare away from millions of people. Our new tool makes it easy to call, and we’ll even give you a quick script before you’re connected to their office.

If approved by the House, this “healthcare” plan will be one step closer to becoming a law that would:

  • Strip healthcare from millions of people by ending Medicaid expansion and changing the structure of government subsidies to make it harder for poor people to afford healthcare coverage.
  • Reduce access to healthcare by defunding Planned Parenthood, which provides high-quality women’s healthcare in neighborhoods around the country.
  • Punish people for any lapse in health coverage right when they need it most by charging them 30% more when they want to re-enroll in a healthcare plan.
  • Discriminate against older people, who could be charged five times as much as younger people for the same plan.

Access to affordable healthcare is life or death for women at risk of and living with breast cancer. Our healthcare system has real problems even after the gains of the Affordable Care Act, but this new legislation does nothing to fix those problems—even with the newly proposed amendments—and only takes us backward.

Tell your Representative TODAY that they must oppose this bill and champion affordable healthcare for everyone. Heathcare is a human right, not a privilege reserved for the wealthy and powerful.

P.S. Will you be harmed by the Republicans’ proposed healthcare plan? Do you think it’s time for universal healthcare? Email info@bcaction.org with your story, and include a photo. We need to show that women with breast cancer will not support any bill that would take away healthcare from millions of people. Please tell us who you are, how this bill would negatively impact you, and why we need universal healthcare.
