Since the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA) was just proposed by the Senate, individuals on the Team are busy calling, emailing, visiting Senators’ office, and writing letters to both Senator Bennet and Gardner, expressing our concerns about the bill.

Chris Carson, LWVUS President has said:

The BCRA is even worse than the version we saw pass in the House of Representatives and is not worthy of this great nation. The cuts to Medicaid will be massive and will destroy the system that so many Americans rely on. This is a nasty bill that will hurt millions of Americans and we urge Senators to reject it
