On Thursday, March 23, the U.S. House of Representatives is tentatively scheduled to vote on legislation that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid. This action would lead to the rapid loss of health insurance for half a million Texans; increased strain on already-stressed local property tax payers; diminished access to care for all Texans--even those with insurance; and dramatic shifts in cost burdens, with the brunt falling most heavily on older Texans who don't yet qualify for Medicare. 

This is a terrible plan for Texas. We already rank worst in the US in both number and percent of our population without health insurance. Urge your congressional representative to say no to this bad medicine!
