How the GOP Stopped Caring About You

Spread the Good News About Obamacare!!

Republicans have been having fun spreading lies and distortions about Obamacare, and they seem to believe they can use this to win in November. It is time for Democrats to spread the truth:
  • Over 12 million people have already gained health insurance coverage under Obamacare, including those who have signed up under Federal and state Exchanges and those covered by Medicaid expansion. Several million more would now be covered by Medicaid expansion except for the Republican obstructionism in several states, including Virginia.

  • It is projected that over 25 million people will have health insurance in 2016 who would have been uninsured without Obamacare.

  • Over three million people in Virginia with pre-existing medical conditions no longer need to fear that they will be denied health insurance or have their health insurance cancelled, or pay exorbitant premiums.

  • Hundreds of millions of Americans will no longer have lifetime caps on their health insurance coverage.

  • Millions of young people will be able to stay on their parents' plans until age 26.

  • Over 90 percent of businesses in America are likely to be eligible to receive tax credits to help finance health insurance plans for their employees. (And over 96 percent of businesses will not be required to provide coverage to their employees, because they have fewer than 50 employees).

  • It is "the best thing that Washington has done for American small business in decades." Click here to read how Obamacare makes health insurance affordable for small businesses and small business owners, as well as promoting entrepreneurship by ending "job-lock" due to health insurance considerations.

  • The Federal government will spend less than previously projected to support health insurance for low income people, with a savings of over $100 billion in the next decade. Click here to read about the latest projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
