Campaign promises to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with something “much better” couldn’t be further from the truth. The changes to the ACA that were just revealed by Republican leaders of Congress will have devastating consequences for LGBT people and many others.
Your help is needed now to protect healthcare for the most vulnerable in our community.
Before Congress approved the ACA, LGBT people—who are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS, heart disease, and cancer—were more likely to be uninsured. Today, because the uninsured rate is an all-time low, LGBT people are much more likely to have the care they desperately need. The proposed changes to the ACA will make it much more difficult or impossible for low-income people to afford health insurance, with life-threatening results.
