Passing health care reform was a historic achievement that has improved the lives of families across the country, many of whom had never had access to quality coverage before.
Under the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, 20 million more Americans have gained health care coverage. The nation’s uninsured rate reached an all-time low.
Thanks to the law, Americans can’t be discriminated against because of a pre-existing condition. The days of lifetime caps on coverage are gone. Insurance companies can no longer cancel someone’s plan just because he or she gets sick. More Americans than ever have the peace of mind that comes with coverage.
Congressional leaders have vowed to try and repeal Obamacare—a callous and irresponsible move that puts partisan politics ahead of the health, well-being, and economic security of the American people.
To date, their attempts at repeal have failed, but we’re not out of the woods yet. This administration is determined to undermine the law, and has taken every opportunity to sabotage it.
They’ve cut the time during which a consumer can enroll in the marketplace, misused and pulled funds and contracts meant for community outreach. Even so far as to withhold payments designed to bring down costs for consumers.
It’s time to reject any sabotage or repeal of Obamacare and come together with bipartisan action that won’t leave any American without the coverage or protections that the law afforded them.
