The U.S. Senate is moving quickly to pass legislation by the July 4 recess, which is really June 30, as that is the last day the Senate is in session before break. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) needs two weeks to score the legislation, which means that the legislation has to be written by this Friday the 16th to make that deadline. That leaves the Senate very few legislative days to rewrite 1/6th of the Country’s economy.
The Senate recently stated that they would not let the public see the bill before it is voted on. That is a direct result of the advocacy of millions of people scaring them into silence.

We are very concerned that the AHCA’s proposed changes to our health care system will result in reductions in health care coverage, particularly for vulnerable populations including those suffering from addiction and mental illness, and we cannot support the bill in its current form. We collectively represent consumers, families, providers, health care and social service professionals, advocates and allied organizations who are committed to meaningful and comprehensive policies to reduce the toll of substance use disorders and mental illness through prevention, treatment and recovery support services.
