The Senate is voting on their awful health care bill tomorrow – and this could be our best chance to stop it once and for all. If this vote passes, Congress will be on its way to stripping away coverage and severely hiking costs for older Americans. We must do everything in our power to stop it today. Even if you’ve called before, Sen. Burr and Sen. Tillis need to hear from you today, before they vote. Call (202) 224-3121 right now, and tell them to stand up for you and kill this higher-cost, less-coverage bill, once and for all.
