An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Congress needs to extend the Affordable Care Act subsidies now!

269 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

If Congress does not act by September 30th millions of households will receive letters just weeks before the midterm election that they will either need to pay more out of pocket or lose their health coverage. Three million Americans will likely lose their health coverage at the end of this year while at least 10 million more will see their premiums skyrocket. The newly uninsured will join 2 million poor adults who are now denied Medicaid in 12 states but who are too poor to afford any other form of coverage. Last year, the U.S. House passed a tax and investment package that raised more than $2.2 trillion in new revenue. You have the ability to invest in American families while making the rich and corporations pay their fair share. I urge you to act now to extend the Affordable Care Act subsidies, originally passed as part of the American Rescue Plan, and to provide health coverage for the 2 million poor adults now denied Medicaid or any other form of insurance. With inflation costing the average U.S. family $460 each month, please do all you can to prevent skyrocketing health care costs for millions of Americans. Thanks.
