LeeAnn Hall, co-director of People’s Action, issued the following statement immediately following Senate Republicans’ vote today to move forward on repealing health care for millions of people.
“We’ve held off this cruel and reckless repeal effort for 187 days, and we will continue fighting to stop the repeal from moving forward because this is a life-and-death matter for us,” Hall said. “Across party lines, the people have spoken loud and clear: Health care is a basic human need. Do not take it away from millions of people; if you try, you will not be re-elected.”
People’s Action is a national network of organizations with a million people across 29 states. Since January, People’s Action’s member organizations have organized well over 600 rallies and protests against Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Several of these organizations are planning rallies and protests on July 29 as part of the “Our Lives On the Line” campaign.
