House of Representatives needs to hear from you
« on: December 08, 2006, 03:08:10 PM »
i received this in my email from The Communities in Action Network. I called the number to the speaker of the house and the man took my name, city and state and i read what it says to say and he said he would pass it on to the speaker of the house. I thought I would post it here in case others wanted to call.

THE RYAN WHITE CARE ACT IS IN DANGER

OF NOT BEING REAUTHORIZED


CALL THE LEADERSHIP OF THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES - CALL NOW


URGENT -- Call IMMEDIATELY!!! THE HOUSE MUST VOTE TODAY


A compromise proposal on the Ryan White CARE Act reauthorization has been passed by the Senate. The compromise legislation stabilizes the CARE Act for three more years. It will make sure that many people living with HIV will continue to have access to treatment and care. The U.S. House of Representatives must vote on this bill today or it will not pass this session. If the bill fails, there is no guarantee that the Ryan White CARE Act will be reauthorized quickly in the next Congress. AIDS Action supports the three year compromise.
