Message from the American Medical Association

Early this morning the so-called "skinny" or partial ACA repeal package was defeated in the Senate by a vote of 49-51. Thanks in large part to the countless calls, emails and social media posts from advocates just like you, the Senate narrowly averted passing legislation that would have cut access to quality, affordable care.

This is not the end of the process. Hearings and bipartisan discussions about legislation to stabilize the individual market are anticipated when Congress returns from the August recess. Much work remains to be done to address problems and gaps in our health care system.

We greatly appreciate your partnership and your continued engagement with the AMA to improve the health of the nation.
