Here's a question I would like to ask Reps. Mark Meadows and Patrick McHenry. Did you actually read the Affordable Care Act bill? Because if you did, why would you be against it?
Why would you be against halting insurance companies from discriminating against citizens of the U.S. based on disability or because they were domestic-violence victims? Section 2705 of the ACA prevents that.
Why would you be against eliminating lifetime limits on coverage? Section 2711 of ACA does that.
Why would you be against people with pre-existing conditions, such as my husband and children, from getting affordable health care coverage? Section 1101, 2704 and 2702 of the ACA do that.
Why would you be against people having an appeals process for when they are turned down for a claim so customers have some manner of recourse other than a lawsuit? Section 2719 of the ACA does that.
Why would you be against allowing the food & drug administration to approve more generic drugs their by bringing down the cost of prescription drugs? Section 2501 of the ACA does that.
Why would you be against placing a limit on the percentage of the money an insurer makes in profit meaning more money will be spent on actual health care? Section 1101 of the ACA does that. I keep hearing that the ACA has “death panels.” The only death panels I see are in the Republican-held House, which keeps wasting the taxpayers' time and money [by] trying to repeal Obamacare, thereby denying coverage to over 45,000 people such as myself.
Because section 2719 of the ACA has a provision to prevent death panels.
So again I ask you: Have you actually read the bill? Rather then trying to repeal it, you should be working to strengthen it. It's the morally just thing to do.
