Stand Up to ACA Repeal in the Senate!

0 Comments | Posted


Momentum is building for Affordable Care Act repeal in the Senate as moderates appear to be warming to some of the compromise proposals. We understand that--like the House's American Health Care Act--the Senate version will ultimately include the repeal of the Prevention and Public Health Fund beginning in FY 2019.

The loss of the Prevention Fund will result in a 12 percent cut in the CDC budget and will have ripple effects throughout the Labor-HHS bill as appropriators work to fill the holes left by the loss of the Fund.

For that reason, I urge CMHNetwork faithful (and their constituents) to join Trust for America's Health and the Coalition for Health Funding on Thursday, June 15th for a Virtual Advocacy Day in support of the Prevention and Public Health Fund. Here are three quick but important steps you can take today:

When tweeting, please consider using #ProtectPrevention to underscore your support for health funding.
