Grassroots Activists Urge Senators to Vote “NO” TOMORROW

Measure Would Scrap Short-Term, Limited Duration Health Insurance  

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity (AFP), the nation’s largest free-market grassroots advocacy group, today announced it will score tomorrow’s vote on S.J. Res 63, on its congressional scorecard and is urging Senators to vote “No.” The measure would strip quality, affordable health care plans away from millions of Americans. The vote comes just one week after the Trump administration’s expansion of these flexible, short-term health care plans went into effect – an effort to help millions of Americans who have been priced out of Obamacare’s unaffordable costs while leaving other Obamacare plans untouched.

Americans for Prosperity Policy Manager David Barnes issued the following statement: 

“Any Senator who votes for this legislation is voting to take away new opportunities for millions of Americans to access quality health insurance that works for them. Our army of grassroots activists across the country will be watching this vote very closely. The choice is clear – either Senators want their constituents to have affordable health insurance options or they want to trap them in one-size-fits-all plans they can’t afford. AFP urges a no vote on this harmful, senseless legislation, which is Washington elitism at its worst.”
