Stop The Repeal Attempts
The Supreme Court recently ruled that the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. But tomorrow, House Republicans will vote yet again to repeal health care reform. Speaker Boehner has said that health care reform needs to be "ripped out by its roots" and Mitt Romney has vowed to overturn it "day one" if he is elected. David's Republican opponent is marching in lock step with party leadership, saying that health care reform needs to be repealed and that he would vote to do so.
Repealing health care would mean that insurance companies can continue to deny coverage based on preexisting conditions, that millions of seniors will the see costs of their prescription drugs go up, that many women will still be charged more than men for the same coverage, that young people under the age of 26 will no longer be able to get insurance under their parents' plans and that insurance companies keep imposing lifetime coverage caps on people with chronic conditions.
There is still much work to be done to improve our country's health care system. But this radical attempt to undo any progress would be devastating for thousands of Rhode Islanders and millions of Americans.
Add your name to the growing list of Americans against repeal now and tell Republicans in Washington and David's Republican opponent here in RI that we can't afford to turn back the clock to the days when insurance companies called the shots.
