Virginians for Quality Healthcare delivered letters to GOP Senators on Capitol Hill re: Obamacare“Thank You” packets were for the 45 Senators who supported ACA repeal and 7 went to the “Gang of No” conveying a sense of betrayal
CHANTILLY, VA, August 18, 2017 – Yesterday, Virginians for Quality Healthcare (VQH) hand-delivered letters to Republican Senators about fully repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, aka Obamacare). The letters expressed sincere thanks to the 45 Senators who voted to repeal Obamacare as they promised voters for seven years. Packets were also delivered to the seven “Gang of No” Senators who voted against repeal, expressing betrayal of the public’s trust.
“VQH delivered letters on Capitol Hill to thank the 45 Senators who voted for the ‘Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act of 2017’ and brought other letters to the seven Senators who voted against the bill conveying our deep disappointment and sense of betrayal,” said Nancy Piotter, executive director of VQH. “When Congress passed the ‘2015’ repeal bill, even though it was vetoed by then-President Obama, Americans were assured that it stood another chance in 2017 under a Republican President. Little did voters know at that time that six Republican senators would flip-flop and oppose the bill when it truly counted in 2017.”
All of the letters urged Senate Republicans to support President Trump and fulfill the Party’s promises to repeal Obamacare. VQH supports a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act, allowing states once again to regulate their health insurance markets and empowering individuals to make their own healthcare decisions, in a free enterprise system, without any government interference.
Virginians for Quality Healthcare (VQH) is dedicated to returning vital healthcare decisions to citizens through free market solutions rather than government mandates and bureaucratic intrusion. The grassroots network is a member organization of the Repeal Coalition on Capitol Hill. VQH believes in protecting the doctor-patient relationship, the freedom of providers to pursue the best treatment plans for individual patients, and the freedom of people to make their own healthcare choices.
