HOW NAMI-MD EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, KATE FARINHOLT KEEPS CONSUMER MENTAL HEALTH FIRST, CONFERENCE REGISTRATION... (855 hits)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM NAMI MARYLAND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, KATE FARINHOLT!

Breathing New Life into the American Health Care Act?

On March 24, the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives failed to get enough support to bring the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to the floor for a vote. Since then there have been mixed signals from both the White House and Capitol Hill as to whether they could or would try to resuscitate this latest effort to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

In response, on March 29, Senators Cardin and Van Hollen sent a letter to the President calling for him to abandon efforts to repeal the ACA. The next day Congressional leaders sent their own letter to the President in which they said,

"You may be pleased to know, the ACA's insurance marketplaces are not imploding ..." They went on to cite his "...responsibility to protect and sustain the marketplaces and the coverage they provide to so many Americans."
