NKY – Action Alert Regarding ACA

ACTION ALERT: ACA (Obamacare) Repeal Vote Imminent

Congressional Republicans have already taken the first step toward rushing through a repeal of the ACA in a budget resolution without proposing a replacement. Republicans are using the budget process to dismantle the ACA by eliminating tax breaks, subsidies, and more. These changes would further increase our national debt, and it is a sneaky and irresponsible move by Congress to weaken the economic structures that support the ACA.
