Congressional Recess Actions (2.19.17-)
Next week, when your representatives are home during the Congressional Recess, represents one of the most critical times to contact legislators about ACA repeal. Your voices have helped to delay this process, with some prior supporters of repeal publicly wavering. We need to keep up this pressure. As healthcare providers, we must demand that the ACA is not repealed without a clear replacement plan that protects coverage.
Clinician Action Network is working with #ProtectOurPatients for a Week of Action, and will be providing resources and coordination for local Town Halls. If your state has a Town Hall planned, stay tuned for another email this weekend.
In the meantime, here are some upcoming events and action items which may interest you.
