Thanks to All Senators Who Voted No on the Healthcare Bill

Your Calls Made the Difference

JULY 28, 2017 UPDATE: The Senate heard our message and voted on a bipartisan basis in the early morning hours of Friday, July 28 to reject the healthcare bill that would have repealed key parts of the Affordable Care Act. This bill would have had a devastating impact on Americans living with COPD, asthma, lung cancer and other lung diseases, leaving many without the quality and affordable healthcare they urgently need.

Now we can work in a bipartisan fashion to shape future healthcare legislation in a way that prioritizes the core principals put forth collectively by patient groups.

Thank you to all who called your senators urging them to reject the healthcare bill. Your calls made this victory possible!

It’s time to THANK OUR SENATORS who voted "no" for making the right decision for lung health.
