We’re Not the Only Ones Saying It: Let ACA Work!

As the Center has written, letting the Affordable Care Act do its job is a key component to reducing rising health care costs.  Lawmakers appointed to the “Super Committee,” tasked with finding $1.5 trillion in deficit-reductions, will be considering various options to meet their budgeting goals. While doing so, we urge them to heed the words of Paul Van de Water of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, who writes:

“The Affordable Care Act (ACA) holds the potential to vastly improve Medicare’s long-term financial outlook…These reforms will take time to plan, test, and implement.  But they can succeed only if we give them a chance, and that won’t happen if health reform opponents succeed in repealing them.”  (Read the rest of the Van de Water’s blog at: http://www.offthechartsblog.org/the-%E2%80%9Csupercommittee%E2%80%9D-and-medicare/)

Support health care reform and reasoned approaches to our national budget concerns. Let ACA work!
