We know women on average earn lower wages than men, suffer from higher rates of poverty, are less likely to be offered health insurance on the job, and are more likely to forgo health care because of cost.
That’s why next week is so important — the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell, a case that will decide whether women and their families can continue receiving premium tax credits for health coverage purchased through the federally-run health insurance Marketplaces.
A negative outcome in this case could mean that health care coverage will become unaffordable for as many as seven million women. Stand strong for health care by signing our open letter to opponents of the health care law.
Without the premium tax credit, many women will face an impossible decision: Go without care altogether, or strain their families’ finances to pay for either insurance coverage without this help, or for health care services without the benefit of insurance.
Opponents of the health care law have tried repealing it over 50 times — this case is just another attack on the health care law. Voice your opposition to these attacks today!
It’s time to say “Enough!” to the opponents of the health care law. Americans need quality, affordable health insurance — and thanks to the health care law, millions have it. Let’s keep it that way.
Show your support for the health care law and the millions of women who rely on it for health insurance.
