Champaign: On July 11th, the do-nothing Congress which has worked fewer days than any other Congress in modern times will be voting for the 31st time to take away health care security for the American people.
“Obamacare does one very important thing: Insurance companies can’t rip you off anymore. Those who are fighting to gut the law today are doing the bidding of their high dollar donors from the insurance industry, plain and simple.” stressed Jim Duffett, Executive Director of the Campaign for Better Health Care.
The GOP leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives and those individual congresspeople who want to repeal Obamacare are sending a clear signal that their vote today will take away health care protections and safeguards for the American people.
Duffett continues, “For tens of millions of hard working Americans and small businesses this isn’t a political issue, it’s a personal one. Their health depends on it. The taxpayers of America subsidize the health care costs of those members who will be voting to repeal Obamacare today by immorally pulling the health security rug out from beneath the feet of the American people. Their alternative to Obamacare for small businesses and middle class families is - don’t get sick. No wonder the GOP controlled House of Representatives have a favorable rating of 10%. Shame on you,” concluded Duffett.
