They don't even know what's in this

Friend -- Obamacare's opponents don't even know what's in the repeal bill they're about to bring up for a vote. It's increasingly clear that this bill is similar to the bill that the House rubber-stamped a few weeks ago, which would end Medicaid as we know it, and would be a disaster for millions of American families. But we've gotten no specifics and no answers. And that's not good enough. Not for you and me, or people like Matt from Illinois. In 2007, doctors told Matt he had three years to live. In his mid-30s, he'd been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer -- and within a year, he went bankrupt as he "maxed out" his coverage limit. Two brain surgeries, chemo, and radiation will do that. Then, Obamacare passed. Medicaid helped cover his co-pays, and chipped in for his anti-seizure medications and ongoing procedures. Matt got his life back. But now, he's back in the dark. He has no idea what's going to happen. "The fear is the worst part," he says. "I'm realistic -- I don't expect a miracle, but I do expect more from our representatives." At the very least, we should all expect they know what's in this secret repeal bill. Matt deserves answers. We all do.

Friend --

Obamacare's opponents don't even know what's in the repeal bill they're about to bring up for a vote.

It's increasingly clear that this bill is similar to the bill that the House rubber-stamped a few weeks ago, which would end Medicaid as we know it, and would be a disaster for millions of American families.

But we've gotten no specifics and no answers. And that's not good enough. Not for you and me, or people like Matt from Illinois.

In 2007, doctors told Matt he had three years to live. In his mid-30s, he'd been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer -- and within a year, he went bankrupt as he "maxed out" his coverage limit. Two brain surgeries, chemo, and radiation will do that.

Then, Obamacare passed. Medicaid helped cover his co-pays, and chipped in for his anti-seizure medications and ongoing procedures.

Matt got his life back.

But now, he's back in the dark. He has no idea what's going to happen. "The fear is the worst part," he says. "I'm realistic -- I don't expect a miracle, but I do expect more from our representatives." At the very least, we should all expect they know what's in this secret repeal bill.

Matt deserves answers. We all do.

Call a key senator today, and ask for answers.

Call now

Thanks,
