The Freedom Caucus is now officially behind the AHCA as amended largely by NJ Rep. Tom MacArthur. The amended bill allows states to opt out of providing protections to people with pre-existing conditions and leaves repeal of the Medicaid expansion and further deep cuts to Medicaid untouched.
I urge Congressman _________ to reject the amended AHCA because it
- Does not adequately address his stated reasons for rejecting the original version
- Allows states to waive essential protections for people with pre-existing conditions
- Still ends the ACA Medicaid expansion and eviscerates long-term federal funding for Medicaid
- Will still increase the ranks of the uninsured by over 20 million nationally and by a half million in New Jersey
