Add your name – put people first!


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

Have you heard about the Graham-Cassidy bill?

Republicans in the U.S. Senate are once again playing politics with people’s lives — trying to get rid of healthcare that so many Californians and people throughout the nation rely on.

The Affordable Care Act is crucial for millions of Americans — and the latest Republican plan to replace it is worse than what we’ve seen before.

That’s why I’m asking you to sign my petition today and help send this message to Mitch McConnell and U.S. Senate Republicans: Stop trying to gut our healthcare to fund tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans. End the reckless political agenda. It’s time to put people first!

SIGN NOW

After countless tries, Republicans in D.C. have failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act or pass their distorted version of “healthcare reform.” This latest plan is a last-ditch effort to take us backward.

Their “new” proposal is even worse than the previous ones. It would end protections for people with pre-existing conditions, impose lifetime and annual caps on coverage, and allow insurers to stop providing essential services.

One of the most disturbing elements of this new bill is that Medicaid would be cut, particularly hurting children, the elderly, and people with disabilities. The Medicaid expansion, which provides health care to millions of Americans, would end completely.

Sign my petition today if you believe that we should strive for a system that provides healthcare for ALL — NOT give tax breaks to the already wealthy friends of GOP politicians.

ADD YOUR NAME IF YOU AGREE

As a healthcare provider, as a father, and as an American, I’m calling on Congress to put forward real solutions for healthcare, not more secretive, partisan legislation that would take us backward.

I hope you’ll take action with me,
Dr. Ed

share your health care story

 

Kamala Harris

As the Republicans attempt to sneak in another vote on the latest version of their health care plan, which would result in 32 million Americans losing access to care, I want you to meet Zeke:

Zeke was born with hemophilia, a disorder that makes it difficult for his blood to clot. Just a few months ago, his parents told me his story.

Zeke depends on a synthetic version of a protein that healthy bodies produce naturally to help blood clot. His treatment costs $11,000 — and without Medicaid coverage, Zeke’s parents couldn’t afford to pay that outrageous amount of money.

So if the GOP’s Cassidy-Graham health care bill passes — and rumors suggest they have 48 or 49 votes — Zeke will lose his care, as would 32 million Americans.

Now is the time to fight — and I want to start by elevating as many stories like Zeke’s as I can before September 30th, the last day the GOP can use legislative tricks to pass their health care repeal bill. 

Can you tell your story today of how the Republican attempts to steal our health care will affect you, your family, and your community?

SHARE YOUR STORY

There is a great deal of urgency for you to share your story and engage in this fight. The GOP is whipping votes and attempting to ram this bill through Congress as we speak.

This is an all hands on deck moment — and there is still time to block this legislation again. But only if you start calling, marching, tweeting, and putting pressure on the Republicans today.

Let’s get to work,

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California
