This article was provided by the National Minority AIDS Council.
New House Leadership of the 112th Congress began their new session by announcing that their first order of business would be to repeal the Affordable Care Act of 2010 instead of focusing on their campaign pledges to address the economy and create jobs. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has developed a website detailing the consequences of repealing the Act: tinyurl.com/26lu3kd. This website contains concrete data and evidence detailing what is at stake from a national and state perspective.
You can take action by contacting your elected officials and urging them to defend the Affordable Care Act of 2010 against attacks and claims that are detrimental to the public health of our nation.
