Making Health Care a Right

Statement

House Republicans have voted 31 times this Congress to repeal health care reform and take away protections from our nation's seniors, cost savings from America's families, and tax credits from entrepreneurs and job creators. Under their plan, students could get kicked off of their parent's policy and children with pre-existing conditions would fear losing their insurance policy if they get sick.

Today, I was pleased to host a panel and press conference at Saint Mary's Medical Center in San Francisco to discuss the benefits of the Affordable Care Act. This landmark legislation, in the same league as Social Security and Medicare, will ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care and significantly reduce long-term health care costs. My Democratic colleagues and I will continue to work to protect health care reform -- and to make health care a right, not a privilege, for all Americans.
