We Defeated Graham-Cassidy! 

Thanks to your calls, email, and participation in rallies, Republican leaders in the Senate were forced to abandon this disastrous attempt to reverse the progress on health care and coverage under the Affordable Care Act. 

Stop Graham-Cassidy, the Senate's Last-Ditch Repeal Bill 

The last-ditch effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and gut Medicaid is gaining steam in the Senate. It's important for people to call their senators and urge them to publicly oppose the latest repeal bill, known as Graham-Cassidy. The sponsors of the bill are only a couple of votes away from being able to pass the bill.

ACA Repeal Defeated in Senate

A vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a "skinny repeal" bill failed in the early morning hours of Friday, July 28.

The months of phone calls, rallies, and online advocacy, your voices were instrumental to securing this massive victory for our health care system.

How did your senators vote? Use our email tool to thank them for voting “no” or condemning their “yes” vote. Enter your zip code to get started.

Just because the vote is over does not mean that our health care is safe.

The Trump Administration still has the ability to sabotage the Affordable Care Act in multiple ways and Medicaid cuts are still possible in states. Sign up to get the latest updates in the weeks and months ahead.

Medicaid Sign-On Letter

Families USA, along with over 120 organizations representing consumers, patients and providers, sent a letter to all Senators asking them to reject Affordable Care Act repeal proposals that threaten the health coverage and care of the 74 million vulnerable children, seniors, women, people with disabilities, working adults and others who rely on Medicaid.

This letter specifically opposes legislative efforts to cut Medicaid funding through per capita caps and block grants, as well as efforts to end the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid.
