NORWALK -

Sen. Chris Murphy is encouraging Connecticut residents to make their voices heard on health care in the U.S.

Murphy is inviting people to share their own health care story and the impact the GOP health care bill would have on Connecticut families. 

The bill would leave 22 million more Americans uninsured by 2026 and cause premiums to skyrocket for middle class Americans nearing retirement.

In a statement, the senator says, "Senate Republicans need to hear the real life stories about what this disaster of a bill would do to families. I'm collecting their stories to make sure their voices get heard. If you're on Medicaid, you could lose your health insurance. If you're older, you could be charged a whole lot more than others for the same exact plan.

Murphy says residents can share their stories on this website or by calling his office at (860) 549-8463.
