Protecting Children’s Right to Quality and Affordable Health Care

Today 97% of children in California have the security that comes with quality, affordable coverage, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) – and you. Together, we have worked hard to reach this milestone because we know the difference coverage makes – healthy kids do better in school, are more likely to graduate from college and lead fulfilling lives as adults. But as Congress threatens these gains with the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – which would essentially repeal ACA and dismantle Medicaid, we will continue to #Fight4OurHealth. We need to #StayLoud to #ProtectOurCare – more than 5.6 million children in California are counting on us!
