Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) today urged the hospital field to mobilize its employees in a grassroots effort to defeat the American Health Care Act, which recently passed the House. “You have every right to express your outrage on behalf of the people who you take care of and your employees,” he told hospital leaders at the AHA Annual Membership Meeting. “You serve a noble cause: Keeping people alive, healthy and well, and we want to preserve and protect that,” Schumer said. “Everyone needs to speak up and let their elected officials know how bad this bill is.”
