Fight the Cut!
On Wednesday, Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL) graciously offered to lead a House sign-on letter to Speaker Pelosi and Leader McCarthy to request that a 2-year delay on the fee schedule cuts be included in the next legislative package. APTA staff reached out to every House office asking, encouraging them to sign onto Rush the letter. Grassroots efforts started at the same time, with APTA alerts to our Federal Affairs Liaisons (FAL)and Key Contacts (KC) with summaries and a copy of the letter to contact their House member. Within 48 hours, over 30 House members had committed to the Rush letter, and that number is expected to grow over the next 24 hours. We will update you next week on who signed the letter and you are encouraged to send a thank you note if your Representative signed on.
Every FAL and Key Contact that advocates to their members of Congress enhances and magnifies our lobbying efforts and creates a strong, unified front. If you want to take two minutes to send a letter to Congress on the proposed 9% cut, or encourage your patients, colleagues, friends, family, etc. Without you, our efforts are only half of the picture! So let’s #FightTheCut! For a shareable letter, press "read more".
