HEALTHCARE VICTORY! PLAN TO STRIP HEALTHCARE FROM 24 MILLION AMERICANS DEFEATED

 

House Republicans decided to withdraw their healthcare bill from consideration that would have stripped 24 million Americans of their coverage and instituted drastic cuts to Medicaid to further rig the system against every day families. After seeing Congressional offices flooded with calls against the bill in the prior weeks, Congressional Republicans could not garner enough support for the bill within their own party.

SEIU members played a crucial role in defeat of this bill that would have made it harder for every day Americans to get the care they need, making tens of thousands of phone calls to their elected representatives urging them to vote against these cuts. As healthcare providers at the front lines of quality care, SEIU members know that everyone deserves access to affordable, quality health care in this country.
