Strengthening IDENTITY | Preserving INTEGRITY | Advocating PARITY
Thanks to everyone who sent messages to legislators on American Health Care Act, the last version of the Affordable Care Act, which passed the House today on a 217-213 vote. Many of the moderate Republicans we targeted voted against the bill. Good work!
I want to remind you that this may be a political victory, though that remains to be seen, but is not yet a policy victory. AHCA must now be passed by the Senate, a much more divided body, and will very likely have significant changes when and if it does.
Here is what I suggest you consider for the moment:
As always, let me know when you have contacted your senators.
Keep our patients in mind as you consider what we need moving forward and remember that we have many miles to go before this campaign is over.
Let me know if you have any questions.
