Is Representative Erik Paulsen or Representative Tom Emmer your representative in the U.S. House? If so, call them NOW. The House is scheduled to vote this afternoon on the American Health Care Act, the U.S. House bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cuts Medicaid. Since last night, the House added an amendment to remove essential health care benefits and time limit rehabilitation treatments, prenatal care, and vision and hearing services. This will allow insurers to offer plans that take away crucial benefits to families and people with disabilities. Every call is crucial; contact them now!
Call Rep. Paulsen at 202-225-2871 (Washington) or 952-405-8510 (local).
