Urge Senator Toomey to Oppose Repeal of the Affordable Care Act

From the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (http://www.pahealthaccess.org):

Congress is back in session, and one of their first priorities will be the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Votes on the ACA may begin as early as this week, so we don’t have much time to act.

Please call PA Senator Pat Toomey now and ask him to oppose efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act without an immediate replacement plan. This will only take a few minutes of your time.

Senator Pat Toomey: (202) 224-4254

If you get Senator Toomey’s voicemail, leave him a detailed message including your full name and where you’re from. If you get a busy signal, make a plan to call back later. After you’ve called Senator Toomey, write and share how it went at robin@pahealthaccess.org.

    I have emailed and asked my wife and 3 children all to email Senator Toomey. I did receive a response and while I do not disagree with Senator Toomey on his points – he does not really address issue of Repeal without a concurrent replacement as follows:

    Dear Francis,

    Thank you for contacting my office about the president’s health care law. I appreciate hearing from you.

    President Obama’s health care law is fundamentally wrong in its approach to improving our nation’s health care system. It forces people to buy overpriced health plans they do not want, hikes taxes, and puts important and personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians and bureaucrats instead of patients and their doctors. News of skyrocketing health insurance premium increases-32.5 percent on average in Pennsylvania-coupled with the fact that 40 percent of Pennsylvanians now live in areas with no health insurance competition, show just how Obamacare’s broken promises are hurting Pennsylvanians. For these reasons, I have voted for and continue to support the full repeal of the president’s health care law.

    With the election of Donald Trump and Republicans in control of both Houses of Congress, there is a unique opportunity to repeal Obamacare and reform health care in a way that puts patients – not bureaucrats – first. I have proposed reforms of my own that will lower costs and improve quality care. My main goals include allowing individuals to buy insurance from anywhere in the United States, to end the unfair tax discrimination against those buying coverage in the individual market, and ending frivolous lawsuits that drive up medical costs for everyone. As Congress begins to debate health care reform, I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind.

    Thank you again for your correspondence. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance.

    Sincerely,

    Signature

    Pat Toomey
    U.S. Senator, Pennsylvania
