Nancy Spillane: Cruel health care bill hits children, seniors in nursing homes

In less than one day, these organizations agree that the new Senate health care bill asks low- and middle-income Americans to spend significantly more for less coverage. The hardest hit will be children, millions living in nursing homes with conditions like Alzheimer’s or the aftereffects of a stroke and adults and children with disabilities.

Those who have come out against the Senate health care bill include:


• American Academy of Pediatrics

• American Hospital Association

• Federation of American Hospitals

• America’s Essential Hospitals

• American Academy of Pediatrics

• American Association of Medical Colleges

• American Cancer Society Action Network

• American Heart Association

• American Medication Association

• American Psychological Association

• American Psychiatric Association

• Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism

• Ecumenical Poverty Initiative

• Federation of American Hospitals

• Mount Sinai Health System

• National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse

• Network Lobby for Catholic Social Justice

• Physicians for Reproductive Health

• Prescribe Wellness

Please call Sen. Cory Gardner and let him know this cruel health care bill is not good for America and certainly is not good for Coloradans — Gardner’s Washington, D.C. office, 202-224-5941; his Denver office, 303-391-5777
