Dear Unity,

Thanks to the steadfast advocacy of millions of you and the political courage of many of my fellow Senators, the latest repeal bill is dead, as it ought to be. The process that produced it is an embarrassment to the United States Senate. Worse, it shared the same fundamental problem as the previous plans: No matter which way you slice it, millions of Americans would lose health care. That’s unacceptable and indefensible.

We should all now come together to look for ways to improve our existing health care system - to improve the options available to all Americans; to lower prescription drug prices; and to continue reducing the number of people lacking insurance.

Ultimately, today’s victory is a testament to the incredible work of the millions of you who rallied at the grassroots level to save health care for your families and your communities. YOU took action fearlessly - from telling your most personal stories to lawmakers, to staging rallies and sit-ins across the country - and this victory is your victory.

We must keep fighting to make our voices heard to protect our care. YOU can help us fend off future attacks on health care bysharing your story about how affordable, accessible coverage has benefited you and your loved ones. It’s stories like yours that show my colleagues that health care is a basic right, not a privilege reserved for the healthy and the wealthy.

All my best,
Jeff
