Is this any way to reform health care?

The U.S. Senate has taken up consideration of a hugely unpopular House bill to repeal and reform Obamacare. Senate leadership plans to hold a vote on the Senate version of the bill by Friday, June 30, 2017. No debate, no hearings, no amendments. And you won't have time enough to read and understand the bill to know how it will affect you and your DD family member. Here is an Action Alert from ACCSES:

Senate Vote on Health Care 

This Action Alert Requires Your Immediate Action!

The Senate health care bill is expected to come to the floor for a vote by next Friday, June 30, with NO debate, NO amendments, and NO committee hearings. While no one has seen the bill, which is being drafted under the guidance of just 13 Republican Senators, it is believed to include cuts to Medicaid spending that are even more extreme than the House-passed American Health Care Act.

We are at the critical stage. It is on all of us to push back and demand that the Senate do its job in the daylight and reject any health care bill that has not been fully vetted. Reach out to your Senator(s) and tell them to vote NO.

Go to the ACCSES Action Center now! Call your Senators’ offices. E-mail them. This is serious.

Kind regards,

Kate McSweeny
Vice President of Government Affairs &
General Counsel
