Trump’s new health care bill, AHCA, was pushed back until after the July 4th recess. This is really important because it means there is still time to contact your senators and express why you oppose this new bill (use the link below). This health care bill is extremely problematic as it will leave millions of people uninsured who rely on governmental subsidization like Medicaid. The people affected will disproportionately be from the black and immigrant community which will further demonstrate systemic and structural racism engrained in all american institutions. Furthermore, the new bill makes it so being a woman is a pre-existing condition. More specifically, the bill does not have any coverage for abortions, screenings, contraception, and access to Planned Parenthood, putting millions of women at risk. QDEP urges you to act now because health is an innate human right!
