This week, the Supreme Court may strike down the federal health care law, but whatever happens, there is more work to be done to bring down costs and make health care affordable for all Americans. I am committed to this work, and my commitment will continue if you send me to Congress.
I held 76 meetings across Arizona to promote a very simple idea: every family should have access to decent health care that they can afford. I don’t like everything in the federal bill that finally got passed, but there was a lot of good in it.
And when the health care law was attacked by the tea party, I didn’t run for cover. I was outspoken for the things that matter to families. I didn’t change my beliefs based on my audience.
What I worked for is common sense. A bill that will make sure that nobody gets booted off their insurance after they get sick. Nobody gets denied insurance because they’ve been sick before. Kids with autism or Down’s Syndrome don’t get denied coverage. Women won’t get charged more than men. Seniors get medication at reasonable prices.
