Why?

We achieved major health care reform in 2010 and cannot turn back the clock to when:

  • 45 million people were without insurance
  • 20 million people were underinsured
  • 20% of uninsured Americans were children
  • Rapidly increasing health care costs were straining families, businesses and government
