The League of Women Voters opposes the current proposed legislation repealing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). This legislation will raise costs and cut coverage for millions of Americans. Twenty-four million Americans will lose coverage by 2020; costs will increase for seniors and those with pre-existing conditions; and women will go back to paying more than men for basic care.
Improving the ACA is a good idea, but this proposed legislation will allow the wealthiest Americans to pay fewer taxes while making life more difficult for most Americans. Please contact Senators Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran and urge them to vote against this legislation.
