Letter to the editor: Repealing ACA hurts families, economy
Placeholder Image
To the editor: A new independent study from the Urban Institute confirms that repealing the Affordable Care Act without a replacement plan will leave tens of millions of Americans - almost 30 million people - without the security of health coverage. Because of the chaotic ripple effect of repealing the Affordable Care Act, a higher rate of Americans will be uninsured than before the ACA was passed in 2010. In addition, many of us will be affected if the wonderful advances the ACA made are repealed like being allowed to keep our adult children on our health insurance until age 26, no longer being denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions, and free preventative services like well-child visits, mammograms, and cancer screenings.
