Senators urged to vote against repeal of health care reform law

Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011

In emails to U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman today, the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus urged against repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

The correspondence was sent in response to an action alert issued by the League of Women Voters of the United States. The full text of the email follows:

On behalf of the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus and our hundreds of members across central Ohio, I urge you to vote against repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

This comprehensive law extends coverage to millions of uninsured Americans and has already made a tremendous impact on health care access and coverage. Under this law, children are no longer denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, insurers can no longer impose lifetime limits on coverage, and adult children can stay on their parents' health plans up until age 26.

To repeal the Affordable Care Act now would be a step in the wrong direction.

The League of Women Voters appreciates your service to Ohio and your attention to this very important public policy issue.
