NKY – Action Alert Regarding ACA

ACTION ALERT: ACA (Obamacare) Repeal Vote Imminent

Congressional Republicans have already taken the first step toward rushing through a repeal of the ACA in a budget resolution without proposing a replacement. Republicans are using the budget process to dismantle the ACA by eliminating tax breaks, subsidies, and more. These changes would further increase our national debt, and it is a sneaky and irresponsible move by Congress to weaken the economic structures that support the ACA.

Please ask the Senator to oppose any repeal of the Affordable Care Act unless there is a viable replacement to ensure that millions of Kentuckians, and other Americans, continue to receive affordable, quality healthcare.  Please vote NO on Senate Concurrent Resolution 3 (S.Con.Res.3).”
