The Affordable Care Act puts your health and the health of your family first, with improved coverage, more choices, new protections, and real security.

How far we've come

Health care reform changed the course of history in this country—it has been a goal for presidents and progressive leaders since the days of Teddy Roosevelt. And today, finally, no American can be discriminated against because of a pre-existing condition. The days of lifetime caps on your coverage are gone. Now, millions more Americans have health insurance and the peace of mind that comes with it. That's huge.

But there are still folks on the other side trying to stop the progress made and fighting to take us back to the days when insurance companies called all the shots and Americans had fewer basic protections. That's why we still need to stand up and make our voices heard about why health care reform matters.
