Support Bi-partisan Efforts in the Senate on Health Care - 7-10-17

10 Jul 2017 1:42 PM | CSWA Administrator (Administrator)

Here is an update on the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 in the Senate.

There are seven Republican senators who have announced that they will not vote it in its present form.  This means that the bill cannot pass.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he may “be forced” to work with Democrats to shore up the individual markets if the bill is not viable.

CSWA believes that a bi-partisan approach to health care is by far the best solution.  Please do not take for granted that your senators will take this approach, even if they are Democrats.  Call your senators today with the following message:

“I am a member of the Clinical Social Work Association and a constituent.  Please support a bi-partisan effort to improve the Affordable Care Act by shoring up the individual market subsidies.  The mental health of our citizens will be jeopardized without this support.”

You can find telephone numbers and email addresses at

As always, let me know when you have contacted your senators.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
