I am a physician and, more importantly, a concerned citizen. I have witnessed first-hand the value the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has brought to our nation. Republicans are eager to push forward a swift repeal of the law, which they have actively opposed for the last seven years.
This contemptuous climate is concerning, because a hasty and irresponsible repeal without replacement could leave 30 million Americans uninsured. Democratic legislators alone cannot stop them. Ordinary citizens need to know the facts, get engaged, and activate to protect our health care.
