What a great job by our grassroots! Thanks to the hard work and actions by advocates across the country, the House failed to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Friday! This bill is dead. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains the law of the land.
This is a huge victory and we celebrate it. But we also know we must stay vigilant because the executive branch (e.g., Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies) has the power to make changes to the ACA that can undermine it through changes in regulations. Congress can also strengthen the ACA by addressing the admitted problems with aspects of the law. We are following these issues and will keep you informed.
Thank you for a job well done!
