The next fight on health care

Two months ago, we came together to take action and prevent Republicans in Congress from repealing the Affordable Care Act and taking insurance away from millions of Americans. We made it clear that it was time for Republicans to abandon their efforts to repeal the ACA and finally work with us to improve it.

Apparently they didn’t get the message. Instead, they took an awful bill and made it even worse – by weakening protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

I talked with Wolf Blitzer earlier this week about why I’m confident we’ll defeat this bill – and why it’s clear that President Trump has never even read it. Click here to watch!

House Republican leadership is rushing to pass this bill just to follow through on a campaign promise and give President Trump his first legislative “win” – that’s the Washington way of doing business, and Americans are tired of it.

I know that reasonable people in both parties want real bipartisan solutions that make health care more affordable for everyone – not political stunts that will do real harm to the most vulnerable members of our society. That’s exactly what I’m fighting for in Congress, and I’m grateful to have your support.
