The ACA is not safe yet

Two weeks ago, America dodged a bullet. The health care repeal plan, which sold out seniors, children, families and hospitals in favor of tax cuts for the wealthy, was ultimately pulled from a vote at the very last minute.
West Virginians’ health care at risk in Republican repeal
Two weeks ago, America dodged a bullet. The healthcare repeal plan, which sold out seniors, children, families and hospitals in favor of tax cuts for the wealthy, was ultimately pulled from a vote at the very last minute. This was a victory—but the fight is not over as reports from Washington show new headway being made by President Trump and GOP dissenters.
Groups continue protest of health care plan
A crowd of around 15 local physicians, retired educators, social workers and health care lobbyists gathered Friday in front of the Beckley offices of Congressman Evan Jenkins and Sen. Shelly Moore-Capito to urge the lawmakers to vote down the American Health Care Act.
The rally was held just hours before the legislation was pulled by House of Representatives Speaker of the House Paul Ryan at the behest of President Donald Trump
