Today the United States Senate voted to approve H R 1628 also known as The American Healthcare Act of 2017.
Vice President Mike Pence broke the 50-50 tie to pass the bill, setting in motion the wheels to derail the Affordable Care Act and strip millions of Americans of affordable health care and restrict women’s health even more.
This was a procedural vote to set the stage for the Senate to start debating the healthcare bill from the House of Representatives. It will be interesting to see how this plays out and if the members of congress actually listen to their constituents. Keep and eye on what’s to come.
Healthcare is a Right not a privilege
