You did this.
After seven years -- seven years -- of trying to repeal Obamacare, last night, long past midnight on the Senate floor, Mitch McConnell and Senate leaders got as close as they ever have.
They put forth their "best" effort: a bill that would have raised premiums by 20 percent every year and left 16 million fewer Americans without health care -- and the repeal vote failed.
That happened because you wouldn't be silenced. Not just for one day, or for a week, but for months on end -- you spoke out and urged your elected officials to do what was right.
You called their offices thousands of times. You shared your stories at local rallies. You talked to your friends, family, and neighbors. You gave everything you had.
And you stopped this disastrous, dangerous bill. Here is what comes next: Our work continues.
Back in December, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed to repeal Obamacare on "day one" of the new administration, it became clear that this would be a tough fight. And if we've learned anything, it's that House and Senate leaders won't stop here -- they'll keep trying to put millions of Americans' lives on the line for nothing more than a political win.
We won't let our guard down. We'll keep showing up and holding our elected officials accountable. And most importantly, we'll encourage them to work together -- to find bipartisan health care solutions that actually make peoples' lives better.
Last night's vote is an undeniable victory. For working families. For kids. For seniors. For anyone with asthma, or cancer, or a pre-existing condition. For anyone who cares about doing what's right.
So this is my pitch: Let's keep working. We can do even better, but we need your support. Chip in a few dollars, whatever you can, and help give us the resources to keep up the fight.
