What We Know:
The AHCA would gut Medicaid, do away with Medicaid Expansion (700,000 Pennsylvanians covered) and leave 22 Million persons without health care coverage. And why? So the wealthiest would receive a tax cut.
What We’ve Done:
• Sent signed Valentines to Senator Toomey. • Sent over 1400 signed postcards to Senator Toomey! • Called his office numerous times and have his answering machine as our new “phone-a-friend!” • Spoken at rallies and sat vigil! • Written and had Letters to the Editor published!
Now What Can We Do?
We must not tire nor quit. This legislation is fluid and changes occur quickly.
• Keep calling and writing Senator Toomey. Remember to thank Senator Casey. Find phone numbers to all of their offices.
• Donate to our fight for health care!
• Show up! Be Present!
• Talk about the issue at your office, picnics, Kennywood, Pirates games, worship, swimming pools, bars, family reunions, EVERYWHERE and to EVERYONE!
