WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution President Nina Turner released the following statement in response to the Republican's plan to repeal the individual mandate.
“Republicans in Congress have once again proposed ending health care for 13 million people to pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest corporations and individuals. Repealing the individual mandate will throw our insurance markets into chaos, further worsening our country’s health care crisis.
“The only viable solution to this country’s health care crisis is a Medicare for All system. We cannot return to the days when insurance companies refused coverage against people with cancer, diabetes, and other pre-existing conditions while making record profits. Everyone must have access to the health care they need regardless of their ability to pay. We firmly believe that health care is a human right.
“Our Revolution will continue to fight this attempt, and any future attempts by this Republican Congress, to repeal any of the Affordable Care Act protections and leave millions without health care.”
