The fight to protect the historic gains in health coverage Colorado has enjoyed in recent years is entering the critical phase. After the first attempt by Republicans under President Trump to repeal the Affordable Care Act collapsed in failure, Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado has joined a small group of Republican Senators to craft a new health coverage repeal bill in secret.
The latest word is that Sen. Gardner will unveil this new bill shortly, and the U.S. Senate will vote on it before the July 4th recess. No matter what token changes this newest bill makes over the last one, this is still legislation to undo the progress we’ve made under Obamacare and take away health coverage for millions of Americans. Sen. Gardner must be made to understand the terrible harm he is about to do to his constituents—and if that doesn’t convince him to change course—to his own political career.
The time to fight back is now. This Thursday, our friends at Protect Our Care Colorado are organizing a “walk-in” action at Gardner’s offices across the state of Colorado. Sign up for a designated time to walk into a Gardner office near you and deliver a letter or statement opposing the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
Thank you for your help at this critical moment to protect health coverage. Once you’ve done that, check out more ways to take action for the week of June 19th:
