Issue Position


With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, we reformed our health care system to slow the growth of health care costs and ensured that Americans have access to quality, affordable health care. If you are a young adult and you do not have coverage of your own, you can now stay on your parents' health plan until your 26th birthday. If you are among 4 million eligible small businesses, you can receive tax credits if you choose to offer coverage to your employees -- to cover 35% of the cost. If you are a senior, you will now be receiving a 50% discount on brand-name drugs if you enter the Medicare Part D "donut hole' coverage gap -- a discount that grows until the "donut hole' is closed in 2020. That is just the beginning. As more of the new benefits start to take shape, American families will continue to see more improvements.
