Last week, the health insurance marketplace created by Obamacare opened for business, and millions of uninsured Americans now have access to affordable health care — many for the first time.
No matter how opponents of Obamacare have tried to stop it — from spending hundreds of millions of dollars in deceptive advertising to shutting down the federal government — the law is already helping Americans get better, more affordable health care.
We’re going to spend the next six months of enrollment making sure people have the facts about getting signed up — and of course we’re going to keep telling the stories of the people who are already being helped by the law.
This Thursday, you can help make that happen in Detroit — OFA volunteers are holding an Obamacare Day of Action
Detroit, MI 48226When: Thursday, October 10th
The good news: Millions of people have already started exploring their coverage options, and many have already gotten coverage.
The bad news: The other side is resorting to dangerous tactics to keep Obamacare from working. We all know how Tea Party Republicans have forced a government shutdown because they didn’t want to fund health reform.
That’s not all. Hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent by the other side — including the Koch brothers — to scare people into not getting insurance. They want to see Obamacare fail, and they have the money to spread confusion and stand in the way of Americans learning how the law benefits them.
Obamacare is working — and we need to spread the word about how it’s helping Americans every day.
This Thursday’s Day of Action will be a great chance to help make the law a success by helping people in our communities get the information they need. We’ll also be telling the Tea Party: “Enough already — stop trying to block Obamacare, and end the shutdown today.”
