As part of the national women's week of action, the Clarksville Women for Obama held a house party to talk about the Affordable Care Act. The purpose of the meeting was to help educate women (and men) on how health care reform is making a difference for them and their families right now and how it is going to help them in the future.
The turnout was great and it gave a lot of women and men in Clarksville the chance to learn more about the Affordable Care Act benefits. Many of people who attended were not aware that thanks to the Affordable Care Act, millions of women can now get affordable preventive care where they couldn't before - and that care includes many services, from mammograms to birth control. Most weren’t aware that this new law bars insurance companies from charging women up to 50 percent more than men for coverage.
We all have Grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, nieces, cousins, girlfriends, wives, daughters and friends that could use this very important information.
Whether you're a woman, a man, or a young American looking to support the President, there's a way for you to get involved. Join a neighborhood team today: volunteer.
