  • The good news on health care keeps rolling in

    This is all the more reason why we can't go back to a broken health care system.

    Millions of Americans now have the piece of mind that if they get sick, they can get help. It's an amazing thing. And the good news just keeps rolling in. Check out some of the headlines.

  • This is wrong, and this fight needs you

    These lawmakers are playing politics, and their actions are hurting people.

    One of the ways the Affordable Care Act provides better access to health care is by expanding Medicaid for millions of Americans. Two dozen states refused to do it, even though it could help their own people—all because they don't like Obamacare.

  • Put your name in the permanent record, alongside mine

    More than 8 million people signed up for health care through the marketplace, because of what you did.

    I was in the room, only a few yards away, when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law. It's still one of the proudest moments of my life. That kind of lasting change that would help millions of people is why I got into this line of work in the first place.

  • What repeal really means

    OFA volunteers made sure their representatives know why health care reform matters.

    Despite the fact that millions of people are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act, some members of Congress have spent the past few years trying to repeal it. We can't let that happen.

    OFA volunteers across the country won’t stand by and let their representatives act this way.

  • Thank you, truly

    Your name belongs on the record alongside the President's.

    "The work you did is how real, lasting change gets made, and I hope it will be remembered for years to come." —Barack Obama

  • Put the pressure on health care repealers

    Show Congress #WhatRepealMeans.

    Today there are more than 8 million Americans enrolled in private insurance through the marketplace, and millions more covered through Medicaid expansion and other aspects of health care reform.

    So we've got one question: Do health care repealers in Congress still want to take that health care away?

  • We made history

    You should be so proud of your role in the fight for health care reform.

    Watch this short video we put together to celebrate this moment—then add your name to the permanent record of people who helped make health care reform happen.

  • The work we do matters

    Here is just one of the thousands of ways OFA supporters worked to make health reform successful.

    Learn more about how OFA-Ohio volunteers worked with Get Covered America to get the word out about the new health insurance marketplace.


  • This is some sick crap

    Do you ever get the sense that some of the folks on the other side are living in an alternate universe?

    If I had one thing to say to the Koch brothers, it'd be: "SCOREBOARD!"

    Despite the millions of dollars they've spent, more than 6 million Americans have already signed up for private plans through the health insurance marketplace. We're beating them through one-on-one conversations, helping people get the facts about getting covered, and dismantling the lies these groups are spreading about health care reform.

  • Sam and Rebecca are young, in love, and covered

    Before Obamacare, these college sweethearts had trouble finding health plans on the individual market.

    These business risk-takers didn't want health insurance tying them to their conventional jobs. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, they're free to pursue their own dreams.
