"Even crueler than the last plan."

Friend -- It hasn't even been a month since congressional leaders withdrew their "best" effort to repeal Obamacare. They presented a plan that would have raised premiums, given massive tax cuts to the wealthy, and taken health care away from 24 million Americans -- but an onslaught of grassroots opposition led them to cancel the vote. Now, they've taken that bill -- which received a whopping 17 percent approval -- and somehow made it worse. Obamacare opponents are meeting in secret to finalize a new plan -- one that, in the words of the Washington Post, is "even crueler than the last one." They're working on something called the MacArthur Amendment, and it would keep all of the same dangerous ideas the American people rejected the first time around: gutting coverage, slashing Medicaid, and raising health care costs for families. But now, there's a new twist. It would allow states to opt out of critical provisions embedded in Obamacare, leaving anyone with a pre-existing condition -- otherwise known as millions of Americans -- at the mercy of big insurance companies, while their premiums spike as much as 3,500 percent. Congress returns to Washington next week, and they're threatening to jam this bill through right away. We need to stand up -- right now -- and say loudly: This isn't an option: my.ofa.us/Keep-Up-This-Fight This is the clearest sign yet that the administration and congressional leaders aren't interested in listening to the people they represent. They're trying to score political points, meeting behind closed doors in a desperate attempt to have anything to show for their first 100 days -- even if it comes at our expense. Here's what they need to understand: Obamacare is more popular than it's ever been, and it's been helping millions of Americans get the quality, affordable care they deserve. It's up to all of us to raise our voices again and keep fighting against another cruel attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Obamacare opponents are having secret conversations about health care - again. The results could be devastating.

Friend --

It hasn't even been a month since congressional leaders withdrew their "best" effort to repeal Obamacare.

Now, they've taken that bill -- which received a whopping 17 percent approval -- and somehow made it worse.
