48 Million Uninsured vs. 4 Million Cancelled Policies

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

The Affordable Care Act is a good thing. Defend it for the sake of the majority!
There are currently 106,443 signatures. NEW goal - We need 125,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Why are we so fixated on 4 million insured people who may lose their current and mostly sub-standard health insurance policies and ignoring the fact that 48 million people who have never had health insurance will finally be able to buy health insurance?

The 4 million insured have had the ability to purchase insurance all along. Now, due to circumstances beyond their control, including the greed of insurance companies, they could potentially lose their current policy. But they still have the option to get another plan.

The 48 million people that have never had coverage would not be able to get any health insurance coverage if it were not for the Affordable Care Act. End of story!

Tell your lawmakers to stop putting politics ahead of the needs of the majority—that is not the way a democracy is supposed to work.
