Victory on Medicare!

July 16, 2008

Late yesterday, the House and Senate successfully overrode the President’s veto of legislation (HR 6331) making critical reforms and improvements to the Medicare program for beneficiaries living with mental illness.  The vote in the House was 383-41 and the vote in the Senate was 70-26. 

NAMI is extremely grateful for the efforts of advocates all across the country that e-mailed, wrote and called their Senators and House members.  Your advocacy made a tremendous difference!  Please take the final step of thanking members of Congress that supported the legislation and voted to override the President’s veto.
