Please thank the senators who fought for hard-working, uninsured Nebraskans

NE_Appleseed_Icons_Democracy-128As you may have seen this morning, LB 887, the Wellness in Nebraska Act, that would have provided a path to affordable health insurance for at least 54,000 uninsured Nebraskans, was filibustered this morning. The vote to end debate was 27-21, with 33 votes necessary to end debate.

While this is a disappointing outcome, we will continue to work with our state senators in the future to ensure that eventually all Nebraskans can have access to affordable health care.

The senators who supported the Wellness In Nebraska Act fought hard, and we offer our most sincere thanks and appreciation for their leadership and passion.

It is really important that the supportive senators hear our thanks.

Please take a moment to thank these senators for supporting LB 887 and the tens of thousands of uninsured, working Nebraskans who need affordable health coverage.

Nebraska is a better, stronger state when all of our people have access to affordable, quality health care, and Appleseed will keep fighting for our uninsured people until that vision comes true.
