Defending the Affordable Care Act on the Senate Floor 1-5-17
The Affordable Care Act made it illegal to discriminate against people with preexisting health conditions. It has ensured being a woman is not considered a "preexisting condition" wherein they must pay more than men for the same coverage. It has expanded Medicare coverage for senior citizens. It's given more than 400,000 Marylanders insurance when they had none before. It requires improvement. Not repeal.
