AFL-CIO Tells Congress No Repeal Without Replace

Today, as Congress debates the future of the Affordable Care Act, the AFL-CIO sent the following letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and all members of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.

Signed by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, the letter urges Republican leaders to abandon plans to roll back coverage protections and declares it “reckless to repeal the ACA without providing an immediate replacement.” The letter also details how the core components of the Republican health care plan pose serious threats to working people in America.
