Save the CLASS act

This is from the Coalition of People of dis-Abilties NYC site:

Fighting for Home and Community-Based Care!

An estimated 10 million Americans currently need long-term services including personal care and other supportive services – and this number is projected to increase to 26 million by 2050. For Americans with Disabilities, long-term care is a critical tool for independent living but most could not secure coverage.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act included a program known as the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act (the “CLASS Act”) that would enable people to buy affordable long-term care insurance.
CLASS would provide millions of people with a crucial service that was previously beyond their reach—home and community based care that enables people live and work in their communities and costs far less than institutional care.
Now, before it has even been implemented, this vital program is in danger.
HR 1173 -- a bill that would repeal the CLASS Act – is expected to reach the floor of the House of Representatives soon. We have to stop this bill.
Instead of killing a program that millions of Americans need, our leaders must get back to work and find a way to make the CLASS Act work.
Congress must not repeal CLASS and the President must VETO any legislation that attempts to repeal it.
