Together, We Protected Our Care
At 1:25 this morning, Senate Republicans' plan to take away healthcare from millions of Americans came up one vote short of passing. That shocking defeat saved health coverage for millions of people and it was made possible by all of you - and so many others across the country - who raised your voices and shared your stories of what repeal would mean for you and your families.
While today we can take comfort knowing that we've successfully protected our care for now, tomorrow we must get back to work so that we can make healthcare better for all Americans.
I hope that now it is clear that a Republican-only bill will not pass, and that the GOP will finally accept the offer Democrats have repeatedly made to work together to build on the success of the Affordable Care Act and improve it. I'm confident that if we work together we can create a system that is better for all.
