It's time to move forward with Obamacare in Virginia
September 21, 2012
The Daily Press reports, "The number of uninsured Virginians has dropped below 1 million, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau figures, released Thursday. There are still 983,000 Virginians without health insurance, but that's a significant drop from 2010. The most significant change, according to analysis by the independent The Commonwealth Institute, was among those in the 18 to 24 age range."
Progressive Point: Virginians need the security of knowing that when they get sick, they can see a doctor without an enormous bill once they've gotten well. More than 400,000 Virginians should receive low-cost health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, but Bob McDonnell and Ken Cuccinelli are playing politics with health care again and are threatening reject coverage for thousands of Virginia families.
We all save money when folks use health insurance and preventative care instead of showing up in the emergency room. But while millions of Americans will get health care coverage under Obamacare, Bob McDonnell and Ken Cuccinelli are turning down coverage in order to advance their own political agendas. Every Virginian deserves to see a doctor when he or she gets sick. Virginians need the security of knowing that when disaster strikes, they can recover without the additional stress of an enormous financial cost.
