After weeks of your emails, phone calls, letters, town hall visits and marches protesting the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the vote on the American Health Care Act (Trumpcare) never made it to the finish line. Thank you to everyone who helped save the historic legislation and health care for over 30 million Americans!
Westside Family Health Center is proud of its community partners, supporters, donors patients and team members who played such an important role in our grassroots action to protect the ACA for the many people across Los Angeles, California and America who rely on its benefits to become and stay healthy.
The fight is far from over. We will be contacting you about any legislation or executive actions that cause harm to our health. Our next eblasts may be about changes to clean air and clean water regulations, climate change, the elimination or tightening of funding for food programs for low income seniors, for low income housing programs, or domestic violence programs. Women’s health programs remain under attack as well as other essential benefits mandated under the ACA.
Now is the time to savor our victory – pat ourselves on the back, high five our neighbors and breathe easy for the next couple days. However, we know that the defeated American Health Care Act was just Phase 1 of a 3-part plan to repeal the ACA. We must remain vigilant and we will need your help to do so.
- Call your congressman and thank them for working diligently to push back the attack on the ACA. The number to call is 202-224-3121.
