I had an interesting day last week. I spent the morning meeting with people who were benefitting from the Affordable Care Act -- some folks who are saving hundreds of dollars a month on their premiums, a few people with preexisting conditions who now have access to coverage, and someone who took advantage of a free checkup, caught a tumor early, and is now cancer free. Then in the afternoon, I saw that Republicans in the House voted to repeal the law that's providing all of those benefits. The idea that we would even consider taking that away from the tens of millions who are benefitting under this law makes no sense. So I'm asking: Will you join me in standing up for Obamacare today? my.democrats.org/Obamacare-Is-Here-to-Stay The Affordable Care Act is not an abstraction. For Americans all over the country, it's about providing the security they need to live their lives. So why is it that making sure that folks lose access to health care is at the top of the Republican agenda in this new Congress? It's working: People are being covered, and plans on the exchanges are affordable. Health care inflation is at its lowest rate in 50 years. The overall tab for the Affordable Care Act is less than originally projected. I would just ask our Republican friends to once again consider why they think it's an important priority to take away health care for millions of people. But as long as they do, I'm going to be standing up for this law. I hope you'll join me: my.democrats.org/Obamacare-Is-Here-to-Stay Thanks, Barack Obama P.S. -- The progress we've made on health care because of the Affordable Care Act is just one of the things I'm looking forward to talking about next week, when Democrats come together in Washington for the DNC's annual Winter Meeting. If you enter before midnight tonight, you could have a chance to join me there: my.democrats.org/Meet-the-President-in-DC
