Be informed | Letter

My sister has stage four breast cancer. She was able to enroll in a health insurance program this past year even with this serious preexisting condition. We have friends that have chronic diseases that prior to the Affordable Care Act could not obtain health insurance due to their pre-existing health conditions.

All of the candidates now running for President of the United States, except for one, have vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act if elected, or eliminate it and try to pass a single payer health program. Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that is supportive of maintaining and improving the Affordable Care Act.

Not only my sister and our friends, but millions of Americans would be affected if their health insurance was no longer available. This is just one of the many reasons I am supporting Hillary Clinton for President. Please be an informed voter and understand the huge impact your vote can make in the lives of many. Thank you.
