Call to Action: Defending the Affordable Care Act
Now is the time where defending the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and preventing passage of the House GOP ACA proposal is our number 1 priority. Support ACA and the AAPI community by taking 2 minutes of your time and following these 3 simple action steps below.
Contacting your elected officials can have an effect on legislative voting! Call Senator Rob Portman to voice our concerns ahead of the bill going to the Senate in less than two weeks.
Then, call Governor John Kasich to raise concerns to our Congressional delegation about the impact on Medicaid expansion. We have scripts and phone numbers to walk your though the process!
Volunteer to help register people to vote! Voting is the most powerful way to have your voice heard, and it is the core of our democracy. Join ACE as we tackle key issues like defending ACA, blocking the Muslim Ban, and more! To learn more about volunteering with ASIA, visit our volunteer page here.

Talking Script: “As a constituent of Ohio I am deeply concerned about the Affordable Care Act repeal and replacement. Right now, the plan would cap Medicaid, weaken the value of coverage and make most Americans worse off. As my representative, I ask that you not vote on the bill until we know how many people will lose coverage and what the impact will be on Ohio’s finances. As a constituent of Ohio, can I count on Senator Portman to do that?”

Talking Script: ““As a constituent of Ohio I am deeply concerned about the Affordable Care Act repeal and replacement measures. As my Governor, I ask that you raise concerns to our Congressional delegation that Congress cannot vote on the bill until we know how many people will lose coverage and what the impact will be on Ohio’s finances. Our state deserves to know what will happen if the ACA is repealed and I ask that you weigh in and oppose any bill that would repeal the ACA, cap Medicaid or weaken the value of coverage and make most Americans worse off. Can I count on the Governor to do that?”
