Protect Affordable Health Care, Tell Rob McKenna to Drop His Lawsuit

Exactly one year ago today, President Obama signed historic health insurance reform into law. Since then, seniors are paying less for their prescriptions and care, kids are being covered by their parents’ health insurance, and children with pre-existing conditions can’t be denied insurance coverage.

But because of Attorney General Rob McKenna, all of this progress and more is at risk.

McKenna joined a lawsuit with other conservative Attorneys General seeking to overturn the entire law, including even the most basic reforms such as protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Once again, Rob McKenna is putting partisan politics above good policy by trying to drag us back to a broken health care system.

We’ve joined a strong coalition demanding that Attorney General McKenna immediately drop his lawsuit and stop playing politics with our health. Click below to check out our new website and add your name to the petition demanding that McKenna drop his health care lawsuit.

On the first anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Attorney General McKenna and the other plaintiffs were clear in their lawsuit: declare health insurance reform unconstitutional and stop implementation immediately. On January 31, a conservative federal court judge overturned the entire law, and now the law is likely headed to the Supreme Court.

While some critical reforms have already taken place, there is still a lot of work to do to make sure everyone has access to quality, affordable care.

We need to tell Attorney General Rob McKenna that now is not the time to be playing politics with our health. Click below to check out our new website and add your name to list of those demanding that McKenna drop his lawsuit. We’ll make sure he receives the petition with all of our signatures, and we’ll let you know what happens.

Thanks for all that you do!
