Speak Out NOW against the American Health Care Act
Please contact California’s Senators to ask for their opposition to the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The next 10 days are critical; the Senate could vote on this legislation (without a public hearing) the week of June 26 or soon after July 4. Family physicians are a respected voice in the health reform discussion. Use AAFP’s Speak Out system to write and call Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris as soon as possible. Although our Senators have made clear they oppose the AHCA, it is important that they let their Republican colleagues know the depth and breadth of California’s opposition. Please take action today! Share this alert through your social networks. Thank you.
