Audio from #SaveACA Conference Call Available

Thanks to everyone who was able to join the call last night, and to our guest speakers.

This week Congress voted to move forward with the process of instructing Committees — including the House Ways and Means Committee chaired by Texas Congressman Kevin Brady — to begin writing up repeal legislation that would go around the normal Senate filibuster process.
Congressional leaders are still aiming to get the repeal legislation to the President’s desk by February 20th.

Many Texas representatives will play important roles in drafting the repeal legislation. Two committees are responsible for the legislation–Ways & Means and Energy & Commerce. Is your member of Congress on this list?
