AARP is steadfastly opposed to this deeply flawed health bill & will continue to fight it as it moves to the Senate. https://t.co/PXeMRTddwQ

The House also voted today to require Members of Congress to live under the AHCA. There should be no exemptions for Congress.

Those who are sick will suffer, and some of them will die. This is a shame and a disgrace. May God have mercy on us all.
