"Mean"

Friend -- If they are successful at repealing this law, Obamacare's opponents are gambling with the lives of millions of Americans and people who have honorably served their country. One of those lives belongs to Robin Schmidt, a Veteran from the north side of Chicago who served during Desert Storm. In 2007, Robin was diagnosed with cancer. She had health insurance -- but insurance companies were not required to cover chemotherapy before Obamacare, and she and her family were forced to pay out-of-pocket for her care. Her treatments ran into the tens of thousands of dollars, and as costs grew and grew, Robin soon had to choose between her medical costs and her mortgage payments. That all changed with Obamacare. Insurance companies had to cover Robin's medications and treatments. Her insurance premiums went from $1,600 a month for herself to just $300 a month for her entire family. If Obamacare is repealed, Robin is terrified that she will once again become uninsurable because of her pre-existing condition. This repeal bill will come up for a vote in the next few weeks, and OFA needs all hands on deck to prevent it from passing -- say you're in: my.ofa.us/Speak-Out-Today Robin's story is heartbreaking, and she's just one among the millions of Veterans who would be impacted by Obamacare's repeal. This bill specifically puts them on the chopping block. Our Veterans are at a higher risk of serious health issues because of the sacrifices they made for our nation, and ripping away one key way they get their health care to give tax cuts to the wealthiest among us is not just "mean," it's completely unacceptable. Now, I have been a public servant for nearly my entire life, and when I ran for the Senate last year, I swore that I would go to Washington and champion the working families and Veterans of our country. Obamacare has given peace of mind and security to tens of millions of people, and we have to defend it with everything we've got. Add your name with OFA, and say that you will: my.ofa.us/Speak-Out-Today Thanks, Senator Tammy Duckworth
This health care bill specifically puts our nation's Veterans on the chopping block - it's shameful and it's unacceptable.

Friend --

If they are successful at repealing this law, Obamacare's opponents are gambling with the lives of millions of Americans and people who have honorably served their country.

One of those lives belongs to Robin Schmidt, a Veteran from the north side of Chicago who served during Desert Storm.

In 2007, Robin was diagnosed with cancer. She had health insurance -- but insurance companies were not required to cover chemotherapy before Obamacare, and she and her family were forced to pay out-of-pocket for her care.

Her treatments ran into the tens of thousands of dollars, and as costs grew and grew, Robin soon had to choose between her medical costs and her mortgage payments.

That all changed with Obamacare.

Insurance companies had to cover Robin's medications and treatments. Her insurance premiums went from $1,600 a month for herself to just $300 a month for her entire family.

If Obamacare is repealed, Robin is terrified that she will once again become uninsurable because of her pre-existing condition.

This repeal bill will come up for a vote in the next few weeks, and OFA needs all hands on deck to prevent it from passing -- say you're in.

Robin's story is heartbreaking, and she's just one among the millions of Veterans who would be impacted by Obamacare's repeal.

This bill specifically puts them on the chopping block.

Our Veterans are at a higher risk of serious health issues because of the sacrifices they made for our nation, and ripping away one key way they get their health care to give tax cuts to the wealthiest among us is not just "mean," it's completely unacceptable.

Now, I have been a public servant for nearly my entire life, and when I ran for the Senate last year, I swore that I would go to Washington and champion the working families and Veterans of our country.

Obamacare has given peace of mind and security to tens of millions of people, and we have to defend it with everything we've got. Add your name with OFA, and say that you will:
