[Vaccination-Liberation] [NVICAP] Urgent Action: Demand US Senate Remove Vaccine Sections from HR 34 (21st Century Cures Act) Before Vote Monday Afternoon

There were several good articles on this Act  -- all sounding the alarm. But the only two senators mentioned as opposing it are Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. It appears that Big Pharma is calling in their campaign dollars for a yes vote.

Here is one of the earlier alerts on this that I got. The Senate voted for cloture so the vote happens tomorrow without more discussion -- 9:30 AM EST.

Call to Action: Ask your Senator to VOTE NO on the 21st Century Cures Act
This is an URGENT CALL TO ACTION and a request that your organization send out notification to those you serve. Ask them to call their US Senator to request a NO VOTE on the 21st Century Cures Act. Additionally, this is a call to action and request for your organization to reach out to the US Senate (in writing and on your organization letterhead; sample template letter attached) to oppose this bill. 
You can find your Senator here:

Details on the 21st Century Cures Act
On 11/30/2016 HR 34, the 21st Century Cures Act passed the US House of Representatives by a vote of 392 yes to 26 no. The roll call is here: 
Originally the bill was HR 6 and passed the house on July 10, 2015. Many of the provisions of HR 6 were broken up into small bills and ultimately the bill was reworked. The new bill removed some of what was in HR 6 and added more. It was amended onto HR 34 which it titled, "Tsunami Warning, Education and Research." 
The text of the newly re worked bill is here 
It is expected that the bill will move on to the US Senate next week.

Mental Health legislation included in the 21st Century Cures Act (Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act) that hurts rather than helps
Washington’s Horrible Mental Health Legislation

Removes requirement that manufacturers of medical products report payments to physicians for certain "educational" activities
"Kaiser Health News reviewed the lobbying records filed by the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America, the trade group representing drug makers, and found the industry group spend up to $24.7 million lobbying on the bill. (On some of the lobbyists' disclosure forms, multiple healthcare laws are listed, and it was not clear how the industry's lobbyists divided their time.) The mega-drug maker AbbVie — which manufacturers Humira, one of the most lucrative pharmaceuticals marketed for multiple uses — spent up to $7.7 million. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent up to $136.5 million.
