Rep. Schakowsky: It’s Time To Build on the ACA With Universal Care

by
Representative Jan Schakowsky

Republican efforts to repeal the ACA have changed the debate — the majority of Americans do not want the ACA repealed and they believe their government has a responsibility to guarantee access to care. We now have the opportunity to build on the ACA and provide universal, affordable care for all.

In the short term, we must stabilize markets for 2018 and 2019 — paying for cost-sharing reductions, assuring a smooth open enrollment, and funding risk adjustment assistance. But we must also put forward bold solutions: a public option, drug price negotiation and approaches like the Conyers Medicare for All bill.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky
