Add your name to protect the Affordable Care Act:
Today marks the sixth anniversary of President Obama signing the Affordable Care Act into law -- making health care more accessible and affordable than ever before for millions of Americans.
But the GOP has opposed Obamacare since day one, and repealing it remains their top priority. We can't let that happen. Let Republicans know Obamacare is here to stay.
Six years ago today, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law.
For me, it couldn't have been more personal. As a breast cancer survivor, I thought of all the women who would now have the peace of mind of knowing they would be able to afford treatment and wouldn't be turned away down the road for having a pre-existing condition. As a mother, I thought of my children, and breathed a sigh of relief that they could go out into the world without worrying about whether they will be able to get the care they need.
And today, the Affordable Care Act is no longer a law to be debated -- it is woven into our daily lives and how we care for each other as Americans. And even though the GOP is as committed as ever to repealing this law that has helped so many, the cracks in their opposition are starting to show. Not one of the Republican candidates for president has offered any sort of real alternative for Obamacare -- and the American people aren't going to let that slide.
The direction that most Americans want to go is the way that Democrats have taken them. There is no better example of that than the achievement of health care reform.
So to celebrate this anniversary, add your name and commit to continuing this progress by electing Democrats who understand just how important this is:
Thanks for all your help. We truly wouldn't be here without you.
