Call Congress: Protect Health Care for All
Congress is already moving to take away access to quality and affordable health care for millions of people in the United States by taking steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
No repeal without a replacement fully established. That’s the message your members of Congress need to hear right now about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). I’m on Capitol Hill today talking with key congressional offices, and they’re saying they need to hear from you.
At its heart, protecting the Affordable Care Act is about more than premiums, subsidies, and deductibles. It’s about ensuring that no one has to face bankruptcy to get life-saving medical treatment. It’s about guaranteeing that people with serious or chronic health conditions – the people who need health insurance the most – can get coverage. And it’s about making sure that every person can afford health insurance, so that every person can afford medical care.
The Affordable Care Act isn’t a perfect law. But it has made healthcare, including preventive care, accessible to millions of people for the first time. That’s worth protecting.
