The Republicans have finally revealed their healthcare plan, the American Health Care Act. They want it passed by the end of March.
Worried? You should be.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT
To bolster support for their plan, this week the White House emailed this to millions of Americans:
TELL THE WHITE HOUSE YOU SUPPORT OBAMACARE
Under the new Republican plan, 24 million Americans would lose their healthcare coverage. Flat tax credits would leave most people — to use comedian John Oliver's metaphor — as horrifically under-covered as a middle-aged man in an ill-fitting thong. The poor and elderly will suffer most. The only clear winners are the wealthiest Americans, who would see tax breaks of between $33,000 and $197,000.
CONTACT YOUR REPS & DEMAND THEY FIGHT FOR OBAMACARE
The app on our Contact Your Reps page will automatically link you to the office phone of each representative. Wan't to contact them another way?
CONTACT INFORMATION FOR ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS IN THE USA
Every year 100 million people worldwide are pushed into poverty and 150 million people suffer financial catastrophe because of out-of-pocket expenditure on health services. All UN Member States have agreed to try to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. If the Republican plan passes, the USA will once again be the only one of Earth’s thirty-three developed nations without universal health coverage.

Volunteer with American Resistance Sevilla.
If you can give a few hours a month, you can help us stop the madness.
American Resistance Sevilla is mobilizing concerned women and men of all nations to march together in Seville on International Women's Day, March 8. We're marching for gender equality and for all the essential human rights and freedoms that are now under attack. Join with us, 8 de Marzo and other local organizations, Resistance groups in the US, and sympathizers around the world.
On January 21, 2017, five million people around the world joined with the Women’s March to protest the new president's degrading and abusive attitude toward women. This year, International Women’s Day is viewed by many as a second Women’s March and an important part of the growing Resistance movement in America and throughout the world.
IT'S TIME TO STOP THE MADNESS.
COME MARCH WITH US!
Women, men, and children of all nationalities are welcome.
Wednesday, March 8, gathering at 7:30PM, marching at 8:00 PM
Plaza Nueva, Sevilla
by the San Fernando statue in the center of the plaza
WHAT TO BRING?
We'll provide protest posters or feel free to bring your own.
At the request of 8 de Marzo's organizers, we ask that posters focus on women's issues.
Posters can be in English or Spanish.
We'll provide armbands in purple
(the traditional color used in International Women's Day observances).
If you have a pink protest hat, wear it!
