The 2012 Elections: "Fight of Our Lives"

Today, Americans worried about affording health care for themselves and their loved ones can breathe a sigh of relief. But make no mistake about it. This ruling is just a momentary break.
Become a healthcare voter and stand up for candidates that fight for our lives.
The good news for working people in America is that the Supreme Court declared the Affordable Care Act constitutional and its benefits remain in effect, including:
  • insurance companies must cover people with preexisting conditions;
  • young adults (up to age 26) can keep health insurance coverage through their parents’ plans;
  • there will be no more copays for essential health care, like checkups, cancer screenings and contraception;
  • seniors will save money on prescription drugs; and
  • unjustified premium hikes by insurance companies will end.
But Mitt Romney and right-wing Republican leaders in Congress plan to repeal the law as soon as they get a chance and we can’t afford to let them do this.
Fight back at the ballot box this November by becoming a healthcare voter.
Republicans will try to repeal and defund our healthcare system, including privatizing Medicare, and they have no real plan to lower costs or save lives.
Don’t allow extremists in Congress to put more lives and your healthcare at risk. Become a healthcare voter.
Now more than ever, we need healthcare champions -- like President Obama -- to stand with working women and men who struggle to afford healthcare.
Become a healthcare voter and stand up for candidates who stand with us. 
We have the power to make the difference.
Mary Kay Henry
President, SEIU
