Today’s Action: Urge Congress to protect the ACA

Republicans are once again working to overturn the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Obama’s legacy healthcare legislation which provides lifesaving medical insurance for tens of millions of Americans. And this time, they’re really close to achieving it unless we push hard to stop them.

In 2017, Congress set the penalty for not holding insurance at $0. This calculated move set the stage for a coalition of red states to argue that the entire ACA is now unconstitutional and should be shut down.

Which is legally dubious as it is heartless. But unfortunately, the case has been heard by a string of conservative judges, and now sits with the similarly right-leaning Supreme Court. We can’t hope the Supreme Court, with a stolen conservative majority, saves the day. We need to go instead where we’ve had success in the past: Congress.

Call or email your Members of Congress and urge them to introduce legislation that protects the Affordable Care Act from the absurd lawsuit attacking its constitutionality over removal of the individual mandate.

The ACA remains popular and vital in the lives of voters across the aisle. And Republicans know that the fight to protect healthcare cost them the House in 2018. That’s why this is a battle worth investing in – not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we consistently have seen the GOP listen and respond on this topic out of fear.

The legislation to resolve this frivolous lawsuit and keep the ACA intact can be simple; separating the individual mandate from the rest of the law.

But the Supreme Court has pushed their decision down the road, so that we won’t get a decision until after the November elections…which means we’ve got to work extra hard to raise awareness on this issue now, since the consequences won’t hit until well after the Presidential and Congressional races have concluded.

Let’s get to work.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and ask them to draft legislation that keeps the Affordable Care Act intact regardless of the outcome of the frivolous lawsuit attacking its constitutionality over the individual mandate.
