President-Elect Trump and Congressional Leadership have vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act and overhaul America’s healthcare system. Congressional leaders have already indicated that programs such as Medicaid for children and adults and Medicare that protect our children, seniors, and people with disabilities may be phased out, privatized, or defunded under their proposed system.
In the days to come, we must make sure that the 230,000 and counting individuals and families in South Carolina who have gained health insurance coverage through the ACA in the last 6 years do not lose their coverage. And that we defend essential protections such as bans on lifetime limits on coverage and discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions, and that we protect lifesaving programs like Medicaid and Medicare.
SC Appleseed fights every day to make sure that consumers have a say in decisions that affect their health, and we encourage you to share your support for the Affordable Care Act with your elected officials (find your US Senators and US House member), and to share your story.
