If It Walks and Talks Like a Duck … It’s Trumpcare
By Pablo Ros ·

It’s called the “Graham-Cassidy bill,” but it’s really just another version of Trumpcare.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has been cheering efforts by Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a law that has saved countless lives and made health care affordable to tens of millions of people.

Efforts to repeal the ACA, also known as Obamacare, have failed time and again because millions of working families, including many AFSCME members, have raised their voices in opposition.

The last time we made our voices heard was back in JulyNow we must raise our voices again, loudly and clearly. This latest effort, led by Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, would be just as catastrophic as previous ones, if not more.

It would still:

And that’s not even a complete list. No wonder leaders in Congress are trying to rush the process and approve the bill before the end of next week. They’re hoping we’re too distracted by other events, like the devastating hurricanes and wildfires that have caused so much harm and suffering in recent weeks, to notice the harm and suffering they are about to inflict.

Act Now

It's still not okay to take away health care from millions. 
Call your senators today and tell them to REJECT the Graham-Cassidy bill.

Taking a previous version of Trumpcare, dressing it up in costume and calling it by a different name is not going to fool us. If it walks and talks like a duck, it’s still Trumpcare.

The Graham-Cassidy bill is still an attack on our freedoms – the freedom of working families to have access to affordable health care; the freedom of people with pre-existing conditions to get the medical treatment they need; and the freedom of our most vulnerable citizens, including children and the elderly, to live healthy lives.
