Since 2009, we have seen millions of Americans benefit from Obamacare. Obamacare is lowering the cost of care, expanding access to care and improving the quality of care. There are many things we are thankful for, like the fact that insurance companies can't kick sick kids off coverage and people can stay on their parents' health insurance until they turn 26. Obamacare is making it easier and more affordable for all of us to get the healthcare we need, when we need it -- and there is still more to come!
Despite all of this progress, Obamacare is facing a big test this summer. There is a real threat that Obamacare could be struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court. If so, millions of Americans stand to lose a lot -- affordable coverage, accessible, quality care and so much more.
We need your help NOW to share the personal impact of this important law. We are going to tell the Supreme Court, "Don't deny us." Send a photo of you, your family or a loved one who has been impacted by Obamacare to email@example.com. We encourage you to include a sign that says "Don't deny me" or another message representing how Obamacare has helped you. Check out the sample photo -- isn't she adorable?
We are going to incorporate all of the photos into a video that we will be sharing online in late May, early June. (We also want to give a hat tip to our inspiration for this project, the Courage Campaign's "Don't Divorce Us" video in 2008/2009.)
Please submit your photos today to firstname.lastname@example.org.
