Ms. HANABUSA. Mr. Speaker, 38 times? How many times will we vote to repeal or take away patient protection from families and to undermine the middle class? It makes no sense.
Look at what we know:
The United States Supreme Court said the PPACA is constitutional;
Millions have already benefited;
One hundred million cannot have lifetime limits placed upon their health care;
By January 2014, 129 million cannot be denied coverage due to a preexisting condition;
By 2020, there will be no doughnut hole, and already 6.3 million seniors save $6.1 billion on prescription drugs;
Women cannot be discriminated against by 2014; last year alone, 90 percent of the best-selling plans still charged women more; and
Seventeen million children are now protected from being denied coverage due to a preexisting condition.
Mr. Speaker, really, 38 times? Why? It makes no common sense.
