While the GOP holds fast to doing everything they can to disrupt the day to day progress of conducting business in this country, there are folks on the other side of the aisle ceaselessly working for change. Rep. Lynn Woolsey, new president of Americans for Democratic Action, has introduced H.R. 5808 to amend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to establish a public health insurance option.
Remember the bitter fights over the public option by special interests groups last summer? The steamy town hall meetings on health care reform that brought to the forefront the deep seeded hate mongering that those who seek only to gain money at the expense of the American people stirred up.
Our voice fought back and together we made history! That was round one. We have an opportunity to do the right thing for the American people. We have a chance to save billions of dollars by implementing a public option. Read this important message from ADA and then sign the petition.
Do you still believe in the public option? ADA does, and so does our new president, Rep. Lynn Woolsey. Rep. Woolsey knows that the public option would help, not hurt our federal deficit. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a new report that said the public option could save the deficit an estimated $68 billion dollars between 2014 and 2020. That’s why she introduced H.R. 5808, with 128 co-sponsors, to amend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to establish a public health insurance option.
Won’t you stand with us and support the public option? Take one moment and sign this important petition!
