  • Description

The American Health Care Act, the budget reconciliation proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), restructures the health care system in favor of wealthier individuals and companies. At the same time, it takes away critical financial assistance that has helped individuals afford health insurance and health care, and it imposes financial penalties on those least able to afford it. These changes come at the expense of women, who will lose access to health care and health insurance, jeopardizing their health and economic security.
