GOP bills would cut healthcare for millions

The House Republican Health (Don't) Care Bill, called the American Health Care Act, would not allow states to use "direct spending" on "prohibited entities" with federal funds allocated from the AHCA for one year. Prohibited entities are defined as any "essential community provider" that is "primarily engaged in family planning services, reproductive health, and related medical care" or "provides for abortions."

So, the GOP wants to repeal and replace the ACA, taking health coverage from 22 million Americans? We will fight back and settle for nothing less than health care for all!

Michigan March for Medicare for All!

Date: 
Mon, Jul 24, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

We know with the GOP proposed healthcare bill, 22 million people would loose their health coverage in the next decade, and this means an earlier death for many. With over 30% of our current health costs going to billing and administrative costs, we know we can do more for the 28 million who are currently uninsured. Also, our country shamefully has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the "developed" nations. I believe we can push our government to better represent and advocate for the majority of people.

Our Senators are on tap to vote on the current health care bill under which 24 million people could lose their health care. On Thursday, we will come together to hold a vigil and die-in in support of those who will lose their access to care if Trumpcare passes and for those who are already suffering under insufficient access to health care: the poor, the underinsured, the elderly, the disabled, immigrants, and many others.

We endorse a single payer health care system to improve access, cost, and outcomes for all people within the United States.
