NFRW President Carrie Almond joined other grassroots leaders at the White House on July 21 to discuss healthcare reform with Vice President Mike Pence and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. The roundtable discussion included conservative leaders of citizen groups who publicly pledged to support legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The NFRW issued a MAGA Action Alert asking Republican women to contact their U.S. Senators immediately to urge them to vote "YES" on the motion to proceed on healthcare reform. Full text of the action alert
UPDATE: On July 28, the Senate narrowly rejected a bill to repeal key provisions of Obamacare, a measure known as the "skinny repeal." The vote in the Senate came as a big disappointment - not only to NFRW members and Republicans, but also to the millions of Americans who continue to suffer as a result of Obamacare.
- The entire Democrat conference voted against a bill that was critical to improving the lives of millions of Americans.
- The Democrats may celebrate this failure and call it a victory, but the American people cannot afford complacency. Obamacare is collapsing.
- President Trump and his Administration have pledged not to rest until we have a viable plan to repeal and replace Obamacare and provide all Americans with access to affordable healthcare.
