Republicans are running scared (add your name)

Tell the GOP not to repeal Obamacare
DemocratsJoin us.
Add your name: stand with Democrats to protect the Affordable Care Act.

Friend --

For the nearly seven years the GOP spent clamoring about "repealing and replacing" Obamacare, they never had a real plan to "replace" coverage for the millions who would lose it. They thought nobody would notice. They were wrong -- and we're not going to let the GOP repeal the Affordable Care Act without a fight.

Republicans are frantically trying to dodge their constituents who want answers about what's going to happen to their health care.

Virginia Congressman Dave Brat recently complained that "since Obamacare and these issues have come up, the women are in my grill no matter where I go." Another Virginia Republican, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock, skipped out on "office hours" with her constituents after dozens showed up to ask about her Obamacare replacement plan.

When Arkansans showed up at Senator Tom Cotton's office to ask about their health care, staffers locked the door and turned them away. Sixteen constituents showed up at Congressman Peter Roskam's office in West Chicago to voice their concerns about repealing the Affordable Care Act and were told their meeting had been abruptly canceled. Congressman Mike Coffman from Colorado was caught on camera sneaking out of a constituent event through a side door to avoid his constituents' questions about health care.

After more than 200 people submitted questions for a Facebook town hall with Sen. Thom Tillis, the senator logged off 11 minutes into the 30-minute event.

The Affordable Care Act is more popular than ever. Millions of Americans are reaping the benefits of access to affordable care -- and 30 million stand to lose their health care if the law is repealed.

Frankly, it's not that surprising that Republican members of Congress are too afraid to look their constituents in the eye and admit they have no health care replacement plan.

So let's make sure they hear our voices loud and clear. We have more than 200,000 signatures telling Congress not to repeal the Affordable Care Act -- add yours today:
