TrumpCare Fails! Tennesseans Win!

You did it! Your calls, emails, and rallies made the difference. Paul Ryan and Donald Trump pulled their disastrous healthcare bill from the House floor today — Paul Ryan said: “Obamacare is the law of the land.”

Our friends at the Tennessee Justice Center put it this way:

It is hard to understate what a victory this is for Tennesseans. Today, Congress learned they could not rush a bill that had 17% approval rating, and they could not ignore their constituents. Across the state, thousands of you wrote letters, made phone calls, met with legislators, showed up at rallies, wrote letters to the editor, and educated your communities about why health care is vital for each and every one of us.

It has been an honor to stand alongside Tennesseans from all walks of life, from all perspectives who have shared their healthcare stories. Together, we stood up, we spoke out, and today: We Won!

The fight is not over. There is more to be done. But, today, we claim victory.

Today’s action is a win for the small business owner who was able to launch his dream because of the Affordable Care Act.

Today’s action is a win for the mom with a chronic illness who was able to get insurance because the Affordable Care Act eliminated the pre-existing condition limit.

Today’s action is a win for 526,000 Tennesseans who gained health insurance thanks to the ACA.

Thank you!

And remember, your support — just $5 or $10 today — helps ensure we’re ready for the next fight!
