Memo to GOP Women’s Policy Committee Members on the Affordable Care Act

To: GOP Women’s Policy Committee Members
Fr: Democratic Leader’s Press Office
Dt: July 2, 2012
Re: Victory for Women!

Despite your unwavering opposition, last week’s ruling by the Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act ensures that being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition…great news for the women in your districts! The Affordable Care Act is also great for moms – protecting children with pre-existing conditions from being denied health care coverage, providing some free preventive services to people of all ages, and letting young people up to age 26 stay on their parent’s health insurance policy.

And while these protections and benefits are already helping millions of women and children, on Sunday Speaker Boehner made clear “to heck” with “all of them.” [CBS News, 7/1]

So in a week when the House GOP tries for the 31st time to repeal or defund the Affordable Care Act, perhaps you should review the law’s benefits for American women and think of those who live in your district:
