Congressman Roskam voted for a health care bill that would have cut billions from Medicaid, allowed insurance companies to discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions, and caused over 20 million people to lose insurance. This is just another example of Congressman Roskam standing with Donald Trump, and not the people of Illinois.
Obamacare isn't perfect, but the data is clear: it made meaningful progress in protecting patient's rights and expanding coverage to more Americans. We need an affordable health care system that works for everyone. It's clear from data in other countries, that a single payer system produces better health outcomes at a lower per-capita cost to taxpayers. So as a Member of Congress, I will fight to preserve common sense protections to patients, expand coverage for those who can't afford it, and lower the cost of care as we move to make sure health coverage is truly universal.
