It's Not Over Yet on Health Care

By Amelia Kegan, July 18, 2017


We are on the cusp of a giant victory, and i's because of your incredible advocacy. As of Monday, Senate Majority Leader McConnell does not have the votes either to pass the Senate health care bill or to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement.

Thank you!

Your advocacy protected the Affordable Care Act. Now hold your senators accountable for their votes.

Call your senators

Despite today’s exciting developments, Sen. McConnell is still hard pushing for a vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Better Care Reconciliation Act may be dead for now, but the threat of health care repeal is not.

Repealing the Affordable Care Act without a replacement would leave 32 million people without health care and end the Medicaid expansion. While some key members of Congress have already come out opposing this proposal, we must remain vigilant.

Your pressure has gotten us this far. We can’t stop until this vote fails and Congress turns to the real problems facing our country.

Thank you for your powerful and persistent advocacy. Your voice really matters.
