This just in

What’s six hours old, 142 pages long, and capable of changing one-sixth of the American economy?

If you guessed the “Better Care Reconciliation Act,” you’re right. Senate Republicans just released their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

That gives us one week to weigh in on the proposal before the Senate is expected to vote on it. We oppose many of the provisions we’ve seen, including threats to mental health and substance use services — which insurers might no longer have to cover as essential benefits — and deep cuts to Medicaid.

We want to hear from you. Please share your thoughts on our online forum (a new feature on our website).

We also encourage you to contact Colorado’s senators. Please tell them how you’d vote — before they do.
