This is How We're Fighting Back

Their secret is out, and the Senate Republicans' attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is even worse than we thought. And now they are pushing this bill that will take health care away from 22 million Americans and "defund" Planned Parenthood to a vote after the 4th of July holiday. 

We are fighting tooth and nail with our partners to protect America's access to health care.

The vote will be close, and we still don't know if Majority Leader McConnell will have enough votes to pass this "mean" bill. That means there is no time to lose - we must make ourselves heard.

In person, on the phone, on Twitter, it all counts towards quite frankly saving people's lives. 

Here's what we've done this week and what we will be doing. This page will continue to be updated leading up to the vote.
