I Support the ACA
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law. The ACA takes our health care out of the hands of insurers by changing the rules to prohibit discrimination against people who are sick, expanding access to health coverage, and putting in place new protections for people who have health insurance. The law will be phased in gradually with most of the coverage expansion taking place in 2014. But the ACA is constantly under attack. On January 19, 2011 House Republicans voted to repeal the law, and every GOP candidate for President has claimed he would repeal it if elected. Elected officials need to hear that their constituents support the law: people who don't want to be denied insurance if they have a pre-existing condition, who don't want to see young adults struggle without health care, and who believe that small businesses should get a tax credit for providing health care to their employees.
