It’s Time to Work Together on Health Care
We at 1,000 Days are encouraged that members of the U.S. Senate put the health and well-being of Americans ahead of politics. We thank all the senators who voted to stop the rushed effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – which would have stripped 16 million Americans of their health insurance according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. In particular, we commend Senators Collins, Murkowski and McCain for their courageous votes and calls for bipartisan negotiations through regular and deliberative Senate procedure.
We now urge all Members of Congress from both parties to work together to support and stabilize the health insurance markets and to build on current law to ensure women, infants and young children have access to comprehensive and affordable health care.
