Senate GOP Healthcare Plan Collapses!
Now that the GOP leadership’s plan to gut the ACA and Medicaid has collapsed, they are pivoting in their effort by trying to push a straight repeal with no replacement. Repealing the ACA without replacing is even more harmful than the failed Senate bill!
Call Senators Reed and Whitehouse today, thank them for helping to lead the opposition. Let them know you support their call for Senate Leadership to now start from scratch with a different, bipartisan approach that leaves Medicaid aside and focuses on making real improvements to marketplace stability and affordability (including a public option!).
Senator Reed: (202) 224-4642
Senator Whitehouse: (202) 224-2921

The ACA and Medicaid are a success in Rhode Island!
Below are just a few facts to demonstrate why we must continue to move forward in ensuring every Rhode Islander has quality, affordable coverage.
30,000 people buy coverage through HealthSource RI. A majority qualify for tax credits to help cover their premiums and subsidies that makes their coverage affordable by helping with out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.
70,000 are covered under our State’s Medicaid expansion, a majority of them working adults.
50,000 seniors and adults with disabilities, 155,000 children, parents and pregnant women, and 12,000 children with special health care needs are covered under traditional Medicaid.
Every Rhode Islander benefits from a stronger healthcare system and from guaranteed coverage for Essential Benefits such as pre-natal care, cancer screenings, and well doctor visits.
