Voting for Health Care
Early Voting and by Tuesday, November 3rd
As progressives we know that government support for good health care is a central issue in the coming election. We know that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has been weakened and the number of uninsured Americans has increased over the past four years. An estimated 5.4 million have lost their health insurance since the start of the pandemic. And there is currently a court case seeking to repeal the law completely, with no plan to replace it.
If you believe that health care is a right, not a privilege, please support candidates committed to improving and expanding health insurance, toward the goal of universal coverage for all Americans. You can help by being a health care voter yourself, and also by encouraging others - family, friends and neighbors - to vote for candidates who promise to improve and expand health care and health insurance for all Americans.
Please join us in sending letters to the editors of the QC Times and the Dispatch/Argus in support of this issue. Help us send a flood of letters that will encourage our QC neighbors to make health care a priority as they vote in the coming weeks.
Your letter may be brief or detailed, personal or general. If you have a personal experience, or know a friend who, for instance, has pre-existing conditions, tell that story.
