Celebrate the ACA Victory and Keep Calling Your Senators!

Grassroots advocacy really does work! The Affordable Care Act remains the law of the land because advocates across this country raised their voices and said do not take away our health care! What an amazing victory for all of us! For now, let’s make certain we thank Republican Senators Collins (202-224-2523), Murkowski (202-224-6665), and McCain (202-224-2235) who voted no on the ‘skinny repeal’ bill.

Keep Calling Senators to urge them to cosponsor and vote for Durbin-Blunt Amendment #592! The Durbin-Blunt NDAA Medical Research Amendment was introduced yesterday to remove the problematic language in the NDAA bill. We need advocates calling their U.S. Senators and urging them to cosponsor the Durbin-Blunt NDAA Medical Research Amendment and to support Amendment #592 when it comes to the floor for a vote. As of now, these Senators have cosponsored but we need more support! The NDAA bill could come to the floor early next week.

Senate offices that have not cosponsored need to hear this message from their constituents: Save the vitally important Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program. Cosponsor the Durbin-Blunt NDAA Medical Research Amendment # 592 and support the amendment when it comes to the floor for a vote. Click here to find your Senators and start calling them today. Please let us know if your Senator agrees to cosponsor the amendment, and advise the Senator’s staff to contact/email:
