Ro Khanna on Health Care

 

 


ACA is a good start; improve ObamaCare

The Affordable Care Act--commonly known as Obamacare--must be properly implemented to improve the status of healthcare in our country. While the ACA is a good start for better healthcare in this country, it is in our hands to oversee its successful implementation and to continue strengthening American healthcare over time--especially as some members of Congress repeatedly attempt to repeal the law and others seek to strip its preventive measures and other core provisions. That said, we must to be open with American people and ensure that those who have been surprised by policy cancelations as a result of Obamacare are able to keep their plans for the next year. We need to honor the commitment that people get to keep plans they want, and I am encouraged that the Obama Administration is working on this important fix. We also need to take measures to lower the cost of health care so that working families and the middle class do not face rising premiums.

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare")?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
