Healthcare law turns five.


Fight to defend it more important than ever.

On March 23, the Affordable Care Act turned 5, and what a difference it has made in the lives of our patients. I hope that you took a moment to celebrate--without you, we never would have made this happen.

The law continues to be under attack and we must continue our efforts to protect and improve it for our patients. The latest attack by the extremists in the U.S. House of Representatives came as they advanced a budget that not only would repeal the healthcare law, but also would privatize Medicare. As nurses, we know this is not the path forward for better healthcare.

In Solidarity,
