Attacks on our health care have no place in any bill, let alone a tax bill — but Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are desperate enough for a political win that they're trying to force them through in a final vote that could happen ANY DAY.

Send a message to your members of Congress right now demanding they reject this sneaky attempt to undermine health care for millions — and any provision in this tax bill that would restrict or take away our access to care.

Even if you've already written your lawmakers...or given them a call — please take a moment to send another message now. This really could be our very last chance to stop it.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), nearly 9.5 million women gained health care coverage — and the number of uninsured women was cut by nearly half. This latest attack from ideologues in Congress threatens to reverse that progress by dismantling key components of the ACA.

If this disaster of a tax bill passes, it would cause millions of people's premiums to skyrocket and could destabilize insurance markets, wreaking havoc on health care in this country. But Trump, Ryan, McConnell, and their allies don't care — they're just trying to give a tax break to their millionaire friends by taking health care away from families who are working hard to make ends meet.

Don't let this critical vote take place without making your voice heard — even if it's for the 10th time...Let the people who represent you know that you will not stand for using a tax bill to take health care away from your neighbors, friends, and family.

The situation is dire, but here's the good news: People don't want this — and these politicians know it. That's why they snuck it in and are trying to pass it quickly, before we can rally and shut it down.

Remember how they tried to do the same thing over and over again with the push to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act? And remember how grassroots hellraising...— stopped them every single time?

We need that same strong, rapid response to stop this sneak attack right now. It only takes a moment to email your senators and representative and ask them to oppose any attempt to use this tax bill to take away or restrict access to health care.

Thanks for stepping up once again for the millions who are counting on us.
