Federal Workers Must Fight Back to Protect ‘Official Time’
IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL THE FAT LADY SINGS
Alliance for Retired Americans | 815 16th Street, NW | Washington, DC 20006
Tomorrow the House of Representatives will vote on Paul Ryan and Donald Trump’s bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that their plan will cause 24 million Americans to lose coverage over the next ten years.
Older Americans will be hurt the most by this bill. Insurance companies would be allowed to charge older adults five times more than a younger worker for the same health insurance. Millions of seniors who rely on Medicaid for long term care and basic health care will find their medical care rationed, thanks to $880 billion in cuts. And it weakens the Medicare Trust Fund, reducing its solvency by three years in favor of tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.
Please RSVP to Call (866) 828-4162 tomorrow, March 21st and tell your Member of Congress to vote NO on the GOP Repeal bill and protect health care for seniors.
The more the American public learns about this bill, the less they like it – a Fox News poll this week found that only 34% of Americans support it. That means our activism is working, but we must keep up the pressure.
Congress needs to know that we’re watching what they do, and that we expect them to improve health care and reduce costs. But gutting Medicare and Medicaid and leaving millions without coverage is not the answer.

Thank you for your support.
