Thank you for being in this fightJuly 28, 2017
Thanks to everyone who fought so hard to make sure the Senate did the right thing on health care! Millions of voices from across Maryland and around the country were heard in the Senate Chamber last night when the final vote was cast at 1:40 am. As a result of all the rallies, phone calls, town halls, and emails, we were able to stop Senate Republican efforts that would have resulted in huge price spikes and tens of millions of Americans losing access to affordable care – all to give tax breaks to the powerful few. While we are relieved, we must remain vigilant. These zombie WealthCare bills have sprung back to life many times over the last seven months. In addition, President Trump has openly revealed that he will use every tool at this disposal to actively sabotage the Affordable Care Act. I hope the Republican Senators and President Trump do not go down this road. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves and work together in a bipartisan way to improve health care for all Americans. Many of us have proposed common sense measures to immediately stabilize the Health Care Exchanges, as well as ideas to dramatically improve our overall health care system. The American people have spoken loud and clear. They do not want to reverse the progress we have made -- they want to build on it in a way that makes affordable health care available to every American.
