Tomorrow night's deadline

The administration is doing its part to sabotage Obamacare. We have until midnight tomorrow to make our voices heard on the proposed changes to the marketplaces. Speak up now.

Robert --

Obamacare opponents know that repealing the law is unpopular in their districts. Last month, they were met with dissent from their constituents at town hall meetings across the country, and a new poll out this morning shows that a majority of voters would rather fix the law than repeal it entirely.

And yet, congressional leaders continue to take steps to blow up Obamacare, at the expense of those who depend on it the most.

The administration is doing its part through back channels, too. Just a few weeks ago, it put out a proposal that would significantly weaken the law by eroding critical pieces that hold it together. This proposal would cut next year's enrollment period in half, allow insurance companies to easily raise deductibles, limit patients' choice of doctors, and restrict others from getting covered mid-year -- even if they have a child or lose their employer-based insurance.

Changes like these don't improve Obamacare. They sabotage it while making it more difficult for folks across the country -- some of whom are battling illnesses or have suddenly found themselves out of a job -- to apply for health insurance.

But by law, the administration must consider public comments on their proposal to change the Obamacare marketplaces, and that's where you come in. We have until tomorrow at midnight to let them know where we stand. Tell them these new rules would be totally unjustified -- submit a comment now.

Obamacare has helped millions of American families access quality, affordable health care. Any significant changes to the law should strengthen it and expand coverage and consumer protections, not make it harder for Americans to get covered.

If you agree, make sure you let elected officials know that you don't support these back-handed rule changes. Submit a comment now before the deadline.
