Today’s Action: Enroll in the ACA and spread the word!

It’s open enrollment for the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA), now through December 15 in most states. And thanks to the ACA, millions of Americans have had access to affordable, lifesaving healthcare for the first time in their lives.

Trump and the GOP majority in Congress have made it their mission to break apart Obama’s historic legislation the past three years. In addition to trying (and failing) to dismantle the ACA via legislation, Trump has cut the ACA enrollment period and eviscerated the outreach budget. Americans responded by enrolling in record numbers in 2017 and nearly matching them in 2018.

Enroll now, and spread the word that December 15 is the deadline for most states. Several states have resisted Trump’s sabotage by extending their enrollment period: confirm your state’s enrollment deadline here.

America’s current healthcare system is far from perfect but the ACA brought affordable healthcare to tens of millions of Americans while doing away with preexisting condition denials and gender discrimination. Despite Republicans’ best efforts, Americans are in a MUCH better healthcare situation than we were a decade ago — but only those who take the time to sign up.

Share and remind your friends and family, social networks, and communities that December 15 is the deadline to get healthcare on the exchange.

Your efforts truly may be the action that saves a life.
