This month, the Supreme Court of the United States will rule on Obamacare (a.k.a the Affordable Care Act/the new health care law). While there is a lot of speculation about what will happen to Obamacare in the next few weeks, there is one thing we know for sure: it is working. Millions of Americans have already benefited from the new law… and there is still more to come.
The numbers speak for themselves. Currently, 54 million Americans receive life-saving preventative care thanks to Obamacare. 2.5 million people under 26 remain on their parents’ health insurance. 50,000 people with pre-existing conditions are now covered–a number set to grow by leaps and bounds when denial of people from coverage for pre-existing conditions ends in 2014.
With the outcome of the Supreme Court case looming, the thought of so many Americans losing access to better quality and more affordable health care is truly frightening. That is why we are launched a new video, “Don’t Deny Us.” People from across Colorado and the United States submitted photos to us to show that Obamacare has helped them and their families and to tell their stories with one simple statement: “Don’t Deny Us.” They want everyone to understand that Obamacare is helping real people. It is helping all of us. We put those photos together into the video below.
Please watch and share, because it’s important these voices be heard.
