CU Letter to House on AHCA Report Card

In a letter sent to Congress on February 15, 2017, Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization arm of the non-profit Consumer Reports, outlined evidence-based, consumer-centric principles that any suitable replacement for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) must contain. We write to inform you that we analyzed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and have assigned it a failing grade.
