Statement From President Yvonne R. Walker
On July 27, 2017 Affordable Care Act Vote
“Last night’s historic vote against repealing the Affordable Care Act will save countless lives. This outcome would not have been possible without the persistence of so many Local 1000 members speaking out, making calls, visiting their representatives and making their voices heard. Because of their leadership and efforts, millions of families will continue to receive their health care coverage.
“We send elected officials to Washington to work together to solve problems and make everyone’s lives better, not to partake in bitter partisan battles that only move us backwards. Everyone deserves quality health care. We must continue to stay vigilant and ensure that any effort to take away health care from our families is met with bold resistance.”
