| Pete -- |
When I was 9 years old, I developed a serious illness similar to spinal meningitis -- it put me in the hospital for months.
I was raised by my grandparents and I would eventually make a full recovery. But when they looked for an insurance policy that would cover me in the future, they couldn't find such a policy because of my previous illness. Not from any insurer. Not at any price.
My grandparents were forced to make great sacrifices to pay for my health care simply because I was a child who had been branded with the words "pre-existing condition."
Pete, no parent, or grandparent, should have to lay awake at night wondering whether or not they can afford to care for their loved ones, and I am committed to protecting every American I can from having to experience what they did.
We have a chance to speak out -- add your name with OFA, and commit to staying involved in the fight to protect affordable health care for all Americans.
Health care is bigger than politics, it's about people's lives, and the chaos and uncertainty that would follow Obamacare's repeal would be devastating for American families.
More than 20 million people have gained coverage under Obamacare, and the uninsured rate has never been lower. But according to the Congressional Budget Office's latest analysis, you could be forced to pay more for less care or you could be at risk of losing health care coverage altogether.
Any effort to improve our health care system must protect the guaranteed protections and care that people with pre-existing conditions and others have today, not take them away.
Over a million OFA supporters have signed petitions and made calls to protect affordable health care -- join them now, and they'll be in touch soon with ways for you to get involved:
