Press Release

WASHINGTON – Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) today made the following statement regarding the White House announcement that more than seven million Americans have signed up for private health coverage under the Affordable Care Act:

“Americans have spoken by the millions in their desire for more affordable, comprehensive health insurance. Insurance that can’t kick them off when they get sick. Insurance that can’t limit lifetime coverage. Insurance that doesn’t threaten to bankrupt their families when an illness strikes. The amount of interest in the insurance exchanges demonstrates that the reality experienced in health care reform refutes the Republican rhetoric to destroy it. The endless Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act flies in the face of the desire among millions of Americans to have comprehensive health coverage.”
