Major legislative changes have historically caused plenty of opposition: Social Security in 1935, Medicare in 1965, Medicare Prescription Part D in 2007. But compromises were made and negotiations were carried out so as to make these laws work. All the Republicans talk about is repealing Obamacare as if that is the answer to our prayers.
House Republicans are attempting to frighten people and sabotage the law — a law that is already helping tens of millions of Americans and will give millions more the security of quality, affordable health care for the very first time starting in January 2014.
Please go to your representative’s town meeting and make certain that they are not trying to destroy Obamacare.
