What you Can do to Save ObamaCare in 2018
It’s up to you to help save ObamaCare from losing its ability to insure over 44 million uninsured Americans. Find out how to protect ObamaCare in 2018.
Join Democrats, Republicans, and the tens of millions of Americans who support health care reform in a bipartisan effort to stand up for America’s Patient Protections and Affordable Care.
It is reasonable for a health care reform bill to look different under a Republican Congress and President but, despite a few old plans floating around, and despite Ryan’s TrumpCare, we still don’t have a workable and widely accepted replacement plan on the table.
Meanwhile, the first move consisted of “a repeal and delay” tactics.
Simply repealing and delaying isn’t healthcare reform, and it isn’t the hope and change people voted for in 2008, 2012, or 2016.
Let us not “make America sick again.” let us “make it great” as was promised. 20 million lives are on the line here today, and countless lives are on the line in the future.
We must protect the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid. Republicans also want to repeal and replace Medicare and Medicare with privatized versions. This isn’t just about saving the Affordable Care Act known as ObamaCare; it is about saving our single-payer health care programs: the V.A., Medicaid, and Medicare, and standing up for the future of health care.
TIP: Contact your senators by writing, calling, or visiting them in person. Call (202) 224-3121 or follow the directions here.
TIP: Helping to save the ACA is as simple as staying informed and expressing support of the law publicly. Ideally, learn about the benefits, and make sure others understand what is on the line. If you can muster the time and energy, join supporters of the health care law at events like this. For now, the action we can take is general, and the path forward depends on the specifics of what happens next.

Protect and Preserve Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
As a result of the recent election, the time to preserve vital progress in our nation has come. President-elect Donald Trump’s anticipated immigration plans pose a significant threat to undocumented immigrants nationwide. Undocumented high school graduates wishing to go on to college to further their education, wanting nothing more than to contribute to their communities and to the United States, face a harsh reality after graduating high school. DACA presented hope for a future for many undocumented students across the country. Young children and young adults with aspirations of becoming future doctors, teachers, lawyers, and countless other career paths were given an opportunity to pursue their dreams when Obama announced the DACA program. Donald Trump plans to terminate this, effectively ending all young undocumented students' hopes of obtaining driver’s licenses, work permits, and a college education and putting them at an increased risk for deportation.
What is DACA?
“Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a kind of administrative relief from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation, and 2) a work permit. The program expires after two years, subject to renewal.
