Trumpcare Halted Gorsuch Next

By Charlotte Robinson, March 25, 2017
LGBTQ advocates are rejoicing the halt of Trumpcare. Now we have to ensure Senator Schumer's promise to filibuster Gorsuch's nomination. Trump has tasted a major failure Washington- Style by the defeat of his appalling attempt to eliminate the Affordable Care Act. Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund stated, "We are relieved to learn that Trumpcare has been pulled from consideration & that, at least for now, the Affordable Care Act still stands. Under the proposed Trumpcare, the so-called American Health Care Act, an estimated 24 million people stand to lose health care coverage. And while Trumpcare has been stalled for now, our work must continue to stop this very harmful piece of legislation." Since the beginning of the year, the Task Force has organized actions in Miami, Orlando, Philadelphia & elsewhere calling on U.S. Senators to vote against the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Carey added, "We are also ecstatic to hear that Senator Schumer plans to filibuster Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch is an outlier judge, whose extremists opinions are the antithesis of the Court's philosophies & his confirmation poses a fundamental threat to the lives & wellbeing of LGBTQ people. We urge everyone to continue calling on their Senators to vote against Gorsuch's nomination.”
