Help Sherrod Protect Health Care

Washington Republicans are trying to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act again.

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding Graham-Cassidy — mostly because Senate Republicans refuse to allow the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office to analyze the plan before they hold a vote. But here’s what we know:

  • It leaves 15 million Americans uninsured in 2018.
  • It ends protections for Americans living with pre-existing conditions.
  • It defunds Planned Parenthood.
  • It allows insurers to institute an age tax on Ohioans over the age of 50.
  • It cuts one of the most important tools we have in fighting the opioid epidemic — Medicaid.
  • Ohio alone would lose $9 BILLION by 2026 in federal health care funding.

Republicans in Congress are rushing to reorder one-sixth of our economy with virtually no hearings, no input from Democrats, and no real explanations on what’s in their plan. We can’t let them.

Sherrod is fighting back. Join him by adding your name.
