Join the National Interfaith Call-In Day
to Protect Health Care
Just last week, Congressional Republicans took the first step in their plan to rush through repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in a budget resolution which will speed up the process of dismantling the ACA without proposing an alternative.
Repealing the ACA without a replacement will
- Spread fear in the 30 million benefiting from coverage.
- Repeal preventative health care protections like free annual well-checks for children, cancer screenings and more.
- Double the number of uninsured children in America, leaving an additional 4 million children uninsured.
Supporting actions that bring so much harm to millions couldn’t be further from the Christian values we are all called to stand for.
What Tennessee Faith Leaders Are Saying
“We are praying for our elected officials and President-elect Trump to not hurt our communities by repealing the Affordable Care Act without a plan. Our concerns are based on Christian values and moral responsibility. Repeal without a replacement plan means millions of people will be harmed.” - Rev. Sherry Cothran Pastor, St. John's West UMC in Nashville, TN
“I pray for and call on Senator Alexander and Senator Corker to just please remember the story of the Good Samaritan and Jesus’ challenge to care for the vulnerable. Don’t take health care from millions of people across our nation by repealing the Affordable Care Act without a replacement.” - Pastor Matt Steinhauer of Faith Lutheran Church in Lebanon, TN
“Will people die because of lack of healthcare? Yes. People will die. The action taken by Congressional Republicans today lit the fuse on a dangerous process that will bring immediate harm to millions of American families if it is not stopped. It is against Christian values and just wrong to rip apart access to health care without knowing what the replacement plan is to keep families healthy and secure.” - Rev. Brian Merritt of Renaissance Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga
