Essential Health Benefits
Don’t Slow Down!
A Call a Day Keeps Trumpcare Away!
The GOP health care bill strips away the Essential Health Benefits provisions that were an important part of the ACA. States participating in the exchanges will be allowed waivers of EHBs, lowering the quality and range of benefits provided by plans.
There is talk of taking away the tax break part of the bill - but of course they’ll just put it somewhere else. Postponing tax breaks while still reducing funding for health care is a NON-SOLUTION.
1. Call your senators and leave a voicemail message (they probably won’t answer on a Saturday)
a) demanding that NONE of the EHB provisions of the ACA be removed or weakened in any way;
b) saying that removing the tax break part of the bill will not increase its acceptability one little bit.

2. Keep up the pressure on the ten GOP swing votes in the Senate, especially if you’re from one of their states. Call and leave a message with at least one of them, saying that McConnell’s tweaks are meaningless and derisory.
