From Families USA - You did it! Thanks to your calls and actions, the House failed to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
There will be no vote.
As our Executive Director Ron Pollack said of this news:
This result is a tremendous development for all those who made their outrage heard in the halls of Congress. We will continue to be vigilant that the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid will not be undermined through legislation or any other administrative actions.
Thankfully, today’s failure to pass the GOP health bill means that health care coverage of 24 million people is safeguarded. It means that seniors, children, people with disabilities, and working families who rely on the Medicaid safety net will be protected. And the benefit guarantees – like mental health and maternity care – will continue to be provided.
It’s time to take a deep breath, re-energize, and stay vigilant.
This bill is dead.
If Your Representative Pledged to Vote No: Thank your Rep and tell your Rep you support upholding the gains the ACA has made for coverage and care.
