Repeal of Obamacare Act

Floor Speech

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. BACA. Madam Speaker, I rise today in support of the Affordable Care Act.

This law is already providing relief to millions of Americans, and almost 20 percent of Californians.

Already, nearly 3 million people with Medicare in California have received free preventive services or a free annual wellness visit with their doctor.

The Affordable Care Act strengthens Medicare and reduces costs for seniors, by eliminating the donut hole that hurt many of our seniors in the past.

Right now, there are 435,000 young adults in California under the age of 26 who now have coverage because they were able to stay on their parent's plan--like Ms. Sandra Rodriguez and her daughter of San Bernardino, California.

And, over 8,600 uninsured California residents who were denied coverage because of a ``pre-existing condition'' are now insured because of this law.

Finally, Americans are in charge of their health care, not insurance companies.

Repeal takes our nation in the wrong direction. We need to move forward and ensure health equality for all.
