This act is a commonsense bridge

Paso Robles

George Nauful

The Affordable Care Act is the first step toward all Americans having health care, which is a right. It provides benefits that we would not otherwise have received without the legislation. The ACA does have some problems, and they should be addressed, but doing away with it completely is not the solution when improving it is the answer.

The health and care of our families should not be so difficult and certainly not controlled solely by the “for profit” insurance industry. Until we have Medicare for all, the ACA is the commonsense bridge to the long-term solution.
