What You Can Tell Congress About these Urgent Issues

We encourage you to contact your members of Congress this week at 202-224-3121 and deliver the following message:

I'm calling to urge you to take action on three critical health care issues before the end of September. Unfortunately, these issues were not included in the bill to extend government funding for three months. 

First, Congress should pass a long-term funding extension for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) before funding runs out at the end of the month.

Second, Congress should pass a long-term funding extension for Community Health Centers before funding runs out at the end of the month.

Third, Congress should pass bipartisan legislation to stabilize Obamacare insurance markets instead of trying to repeal Obamacare.

Thank you for your assistance.
