Oppose Any Legislation That Includes the Public Option
Write your legislator and tell them to oppose any legislation that includes the public option like the Medicare-X bill recently introduced in the U.S. Senate. American families cannot afford to pay more in taxes or health care costs to create the public option.
Every American deserves access to affordable, high-quality health coverage and care, and the best way to achieve this is to strengthen our current system where private coverage, Medicare, and Medicaid work together.
During this critical time, our leaders must build on and improve what’s working to expand access to health coverage and care for every American – not start over by creating a new government-controlled health insurance system we can’t afford like the public option, included in the proposed Medicare-X legislation.
