The present course of action that the White House and Congress are taking sends us backwards. We don’t want to go back to the way thing used to be:
- Being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions,
- Medical bills threatening to bankrupt families,
- Practitioners fighting insurance companies for basic coverage for their patients, and
- Disparity between what men and women pay for health insurance.
The problems with American healthcare are caused by predatory insurance companies and monopolies, not the Affordable Care Act.
We need to expand the Affordable Care Act by passing legislation that corrects what is not working in the ACA and allows greater access to everyone. We need access to affordable prescription medication as well as access to birth control. I am pro-choice and support a woman’s privacy and reproductive rights.
