Call Senate:About Harmful Health Care Bill, Leaving 23 Million Without Health Insuranc 202--224-3121

"The CBPP concluded that the Senate’s working version has “ virtually the same overall harmful impacts as the House bill.” The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the American Health Care Act (ACHA) would leave 23 million people uninsured.
Key House and Senate health bill overlaps include, but are not limited to, the Medicaid expansion phase out plan and consumer protections approach.The AHCA would freeze Medicaid enrollments starting in 2020, effectively unraveling the expansion and leaving millions without insurance. The Senate’s health version, first reported by Axios, would phase out the Medicaid expansion by creating a three-year glide-path beginning in 2020. The Medicaid expansion gradual phaseout reportedly garnered some moderate Republican support, including from Ohio Governor John Kasich, whose state expanded Medicaid."
