Tell Paul Ryan you take away my healthcare, I take away yours.

Congress can take away health care for people without affecting their own, heavily subsidized health insurance, which is paid for by we, the taxpayers.

Politicians don't have to worry about their medical coverage if the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare is repealed. They have it for life at the taxpayers' expense. It is time to tell those in Washington DC that if they take away our health care, their health care will be taken away as well.

The  ACA/Obamacare is under attack by the Republicans and President Trump. It is true that the ACA/Obamacare needs to be fine tuned but let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. Repealing ACA/Obamacare could potentially result with people dying without proper health care. If you have a preexisting medical condition it may be impossible to obtain affordable medical coverage. Is this how we treat people in America? People who have survived cancer, for example, would find it impossible to buy medical coverage because, as we know, medical care is costly.  

Senator Maria Cantwell stated: "It is a known fact that repealing the Affordable Care Act would steal health care from more than 20 million Americans and put it into the hands of special interests. Repealing the Affordable Care Act would also balloon the deficit and drive up health care costs for working families and taxpayers."

By signing this petition we the people will be letting Congress know that we want everything they repeal, with ACA/Obamacare, to apply to their health insurance. If they take away health care for 20 million citizens, we want to take away health care for them to the exact extent that they remove coverage for the American people covered under ACA/Obamacare.
