We cannot go back to the days when someone could be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition or when you could be charged more for coverage for simply being a woman. That’s why I’ve voted against each and every attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. However, we must do more to make sure all Americans have access to affordable, quality health care.
Health care reform needs to be a continuing conversation. We need to support health care innovation and new technologies to lower costs, and allow individuals to choose between public and private options. We must make it easier and more affordable for small businesses to provide health coverage for their employees. That’s why I introduced legislation to expand the small business tax credit to help small businesses cover their workers.
