On Wednesday morning, NCHC sent a letter to all senators urging their opposition to forthcoming skinny repeal proposals, related amendments, and final passage of HR 1628.
Congress should give up the latest attempt to revive fundamentally flawed repeal legislation. It is time to refocus on ways to actually slow the growth of health costs rather than simply shifting them to patients and states.
NCHC called on the Senate to pursue an alternative, bipartisan path forward on health care following the House of Representatives’ recent passage of HR 1628, the American Health Care Act (AHCA).

It is time for a fresh start.” […]
