impacts. That number is at the heart of the groups’ unity.
The American Academy of Pediatrics also spoke out on behalf of their patients. “The rate of children’s health coverage in our country is at a historic high of 95 percent; the AHCA would not only halt this progress, it would tear it down,” said Dr. Fernando Stein, the group’s president.

All the groups involved have said that they look forward to working with the Senate to fix the AHCA. It will be more difficult to pass the bill in the Senate. House Democrats all voted against the bill, and that seems likely to hold up in the Senate. Republicans only have a two-vote majority, and several of their senators are already discussing their concerns.
