We know the House bill would have damaging effects in Nebraska. It would cause sharp insurance price increases for older adults and people with health conditions.

And the bill’s drastic cuts to Medicaid will hurt many of the 230,000 Nebraskans – most of them children, seniors, and people with disabilities – who rely on Medicaid for coverage. It also will lead to higher costs to our state at a time when we’re already dealing with a large budget deficit.

Tell your Congressman to vote “No” on the American Health Care Act because:

  • It will make insurance unaffordable for thousands of Nebraskans who finally could get coverage thanks to the ACA.
  • The drastic cuts to Medicaid would take away health coverage from children, seniors and people with disabilities and force states to lower Medicaid provider payments, which will hurt our health care facilities.
  • The bill will cause chaos in the insurance market that will affect everyone, even people who have coverage through their employers.

Please make a call today! Speak up to protect quality, affordable health coverage for hundreds of thousands of Nebraskans.

Tell your Representative that Nebraska needs the health care protections of the ACA and Medicaid. Any ACA replacement plan must let every Nebraskan be able to get life-saving health insurance.

    Mr. Fortenberry, you represent single mothers, veterans, young, self-employed farm families, the12.6% of our families who live at or below poverty level. Sixteen of the top 25 counties with the highest rates of enrollment in ACA nationally, are in Nebraska. I grew up, part of a dairy farm family, one of nine children. We only had health insurance for the few months when my father took a night shift job at Hormel in Fremont to try and get a health insurance plan for us. He didn’t last long, as a man must sleep. You cannot vote to do away with the only hope folks like those you represent have ever had for affordable healthcare. DO NOT VOTE AGAINST OUR WISHES! Vote to protect our ACA!
