Fix the flaws of ACA

Published 10:00 pm Tuesday, March 28, 2017

I write related to continuing concern about the Affordable Care Act. I have been in healthcare for 37 years and while I fully support a single payer system, “it ain’t gonna happen.” Although the American Healthcare Act never came to a vote, this is more than ever a reason to muster bipartisan support for fixing the ACA so that it remains solidly in place. The law has flaws that need to be addressed. We cannot be distracted by a “win” that was facilitated by ultra-conservatives that would seek to gut the legislation and place marginalized populations further at risk.

Please write your Members of Congress    ask them to outreach their colleagues in this important effort.
