SILVER SPRING, MD – The American Nurses Association (ANA) announced today that it will participate in a press conference with U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), and Maggie Hassan (D-NH) on Thursday, June 22 at the U.S. Capitol to highlight how the American Health Care Act (AHCA) would end Essential Health Benefits for millions of families across the country. Also, on Tuesday, June 20, ANA sent a letter to GOP Senate leaders reiterating its strong opposition to the AHCA. ANA is deeply disappointed with Senate plans to rush the secretly crafted proposal to the floor for a vote without holding hearings or allowing ample opportunity for analysis and public feedback of the proposal which would drastically impact the 23 million Americans who stand to lose coverage. The event will stream live here.
