Congress is considering a bill that would significantly alter America’s health care sector, which is 1/6th of our economy and impacts every American. This bill has had no hearings and very limited debate. This is in contrast to the 79 hearings that were held to discuss the Affordable Care Act. Republicans released their bill only 48 hours before holding committee markups, while Democrats released the initial draft of the ACA 30 days prior to the first committee markup.
Every American deserves to have their voice heard by Congress in this critical debate about their health care—both supporters and opponents. Civic engagement with Congress is enshrined in the Constitution. Americans worry that when they call or email their member of Congress, their voice could potentially be ignored. ResistRepeal.org is an effort to increase transparency and accountability and assure Americans that they have a voice in their government.
