"I have a pre-existing condition" - Tammy

In case you haven't heard, Senate Republicans are mounting a last-ditch effort to squeeze in an Affordable Care Act repeal before the end of the month.

Much like last time, Senate Republicans are trying to rush through their new repeal of the ACA in the hopes Americans won't have a chance to fully grasp the shortfalls of their plan to replace it.

But they can't gloss over how bad it is. Republicans' plan gets rid of protections for people with pre-existing conditions -- people like Tammy.

It cuts Medicaid funding. And it would result in millions more Americans without health insurance.

You should also know that Republicans are pushing hard to get the 50 votes they need to pass it -- and they are coming precariously close. President Trump already said he would sign the bill if it makes it to his desk.

Tammy's out there working to protect our health care, and she needs to know that we're in her corner. Let's show her we're supporting her efforts by reaching our $15,000 FEC goal in time for the deadline.

Thank you,
Team Duckworth
