The Community Living Assistance and Supportive Services (CLASS) Act, which many of you worked so hard to help create, is under threat of repeal and we need your help to save it.
On Tuesday, we'll be hosting a Call-In Day to Save CLASS.
We hope you'll participate by sending by calling 888-785-9795 on Tuesday, July 26, and telling your members of Congress 3 main reasons repealing the program would be a mistake:
1. CLASS Helps Americans - The CLASS program provides families with an affordable way to plan for future supports and services. CLASS will allow more Americans the ability to remain in their homes while getting the care they need.
2. CLASS Saves Money - The Congressional Budget Office said CLASS will reduce the budget deficit by $83 billion over 10 years. The program also saves federal dollars spent on Medicaid by reducing the number of people relying on the program for long-term services and supports.
3. Americans Support CLASS - A Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard poll found that 76% of Americans support the CLASS Act program.
Twitter Campaign for CLASS

Feel free to author your own tweet, but we ask that you include the #CLASSact hashtag.
The coalition supporting CLASS is strong, but your voice makes it stronger.
