Health care is at risk

Health care is a major issue for this election as well as being challenged in the Supreme Court in early November. The Republicans are hoping to dismantle the ACA (Obamacare), which will leave 20+ million people without coverage at a time our country is in a health care crisis.

For those who track this, please remember that the Republicans have had twelve years - 12 YEARS! - and have never put forth a comprehensive alternative option. Don’t expect them to come up with anything soon if they keep the presidency and/or the Senate.
