Sign Hillary Clinton's Health Care Letter

Stand with Hillary if you're with her in the fight for affordable health care:
"Now is our chance to beat the odds and give the American people the health security they need."–Hillary in 1993

This morning, the Supreme Court sided with common sense and America's families, and confirmed again that the Affordable Care Act is the law of land -- and it's here to stay.
This ruling is a victory for every American, especially the millions whose lives have been improved by health care reform and the countless more who fought hard to pass and protect this law. It's a reminder that while progress never comes easy, if we keep working, keep pushing, and never, ever give up, anything is possible.
Add your name if you agree that access to health care is a basic human right.
Despite two clear rulings by the highest court in the land, Republicans running for president still want to take basic health security away from millions of Americans.
They’re in lockstep with allies in Congress who have voted more than 50 times to repeal or dismantle the Affordable Care Act without proposing a single viable alternative.
The next president will either protect and expand health care for every American, or undo the progress we’ve made.
If you believe we need to keep fighting, join me:
Health care reform was a hard-fought battle -- congratulations to everyone who played a part in this win.
Thank you,

Statement from Hillary Clinton on Supreme Court Decision on Affordable Care Act

Hillary Clinton released the following statement after the Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act in the King v. Burwell decision.

I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision to affirm what the authors of the Affordable Care Act clearly intended and wrote into law: that health insurance should be affordable and available in every state across the country.

Republicans in Congress have waged a sustained attack against this promise.  They’ve voted more than 50 times to repeal or dismantle the law, roll back coverage for millions of Americans, and let insurers write their own rules again – all without proposing any viable alternatives.  Now that the Supreme Court has once again re-affirmed the ACA as the law of the land, it’s time for the Republican attacks to end.  It’s time to move on.

The Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect, but the evidence is clear: it’s working. Sixteen million Americans have gained coverage.  Millions of young people are able to stay on their parents’ plans.  Insurance companies can no longer discriminate against people with preexisting conditions or charge women higher rates just because of their gender.

Republicans should stop trying to tear down the law and start working across party lines to build on these successes.

I’ve fought for the promise of quality, affordable health care for every American for decades.  And I’m not going to stop now.  Anyone seeking to lead our country should stand up and support this decision.
