Watch: 'Lives Are at Stake!' Furious Americans Tweet #SaveACA After Senate Starts Phase One of Obamacare Repeal

Here's how you can demand your state senator protect your health insurance.

Published January 13, 2017

  1. On Wednesday, in the wee hours of the night, the Senate voted to pass a budget that would work towards gutting the affordable care act

    Although the Senate vote does not repeal President Obama's health care act, it does lay the groundwork for Republicans to begin the gutting process of the Affordable Care Act. 

    Many are concerned that the repeal will take place without the GOP having a stable replacement plan.

  2. The start of the repeal process inspired Americans to create the hashtag #SaveACA
  3. Statistically speaking, the clauses in the affordable care act have tremendously helped the country
  4. Many have shared their harrowing stories on Twitter about how they've benefited from the ACA and why they're terrified of its repeal
  5. You can call 1-866-426-2631 and tell your representative to save the affordable care act and make sure that millions of Americans don't go without health care
