In case you missed it, we wanted to share Governor O’Malley’s oped in the Baltimore Sun today on how health care reform has helped Marylanders and why we can’t afford to lose the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.
Key Points: “Maryland’s progress under the ACA exemplifies how much is at stake in the Supreme Court. If the court strips us of these critical tools, the impact will be felt most deeply in homes and communities far from the corridors of power. Critically ill children will lose coverage, families facing illness will be forced into bankruptcy, businesses large and small will suffer from a less healthy workforce, and costs will keep rising as we all pay the price for uncompensated care.
At stake is a lot more than an abstract legal analysis. At risk are protections and resources critical to healthy families, healthy communities and a healthy workforce. It’s a toolbox that is saving lives and one that we should keep.”
