House Could Vote on Revised Health Care Bill as Early as Tomorrow (Thursday, April 27, 2017)
Adding insult to injury, the House is developing an alternative to the recently failed attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act that is WORSE for working families than the original bill.
Unfortunately, New Jersey’s own Congressman, Tom MacArthur (R-3) is brokering amendments with the most conservative members of the Freedom Caucus to:
- Allow states to waive protections for those with pre-existing conditions;
- Allow insurers to increase the cost of coverage for older Americans over the age of 50.
Also, the amendments do nothing to lower the cost of coverage and still remove coverage from 24 million people. This is not progress and it must be defeated.
Please contact your Member of Congress immediately and tell them “to Vote NO on the new plan to Repeal & Replace the ACA, including their intention to end coverage for pre-existing conditions.”
