It's time for a final push to stop health care repeal dead in its tracks.

We're getting alarming reports that Senators are close to scrounging up enough votes to pass their new health care repeal bill.
Known as Graham-Cassidy, it has all the terrible features that we've seen before. The bill would:
- Strip health insurance from millions of Americans;
- Cut Medicaid for Texas children, seniors, people with disabilities, and pregnant women;
- End protections for people with pre-existing conditions; and
- Make health care more expensive.
For more details on how the bill works and what it would mean for Texas, take a look at this helpful blog post from CPPP.
The good news is that parliamentary rules only give the Senate until September 30th to pass the bill, so you only need to mobilize against the bill for a few more days.
So now it's time to take action!
Please call your Senators today at 202-224-3121 and urge them to oppose the Graham-Cassidy health care repeal bill.
