Cheers to Our Health

Today marks nearly a decade since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The law has shifted the narrative from volume to value all while expanding access to quality health care. In the last nine years, the ACA has helped thousands of families in Washington get healthy and stay healthy.

The ACA has changed the landscape of health care in our community in several ways:

I have cosponsored legislation to combat the attacks to the ACA by the Trump Administration and am committed to protecting the progress we've made. I support the expansion of a public option for health care alongside private insurers to drive marketplace competition and to ensure that every American has access to the care they need.

Together, we can continue improving health care for Americans at all stages of life, whether that is access to affordable care for families and students, improving Medicare for our seniors, or expanding the benefits for our Veterans at the VA.

Cheers to more anniversaries in good health,

Rick
