http://www.standupforhealthcare.org has just been launched to explain our historic health care reform law clearly, empowering Americans with knowledge and giving them the opportunity to become health care leaders.
Thanks to our historic health reform law, Americans will be able to get the care they need, when they need it, and insurance companies will finally be held accountable for putting profits before people.
While passing the law is a victory for health care consumers, there is still more work to be done. Not everyone knows about the great benefits and key protections in our new law, and opponents of reform are using that lack of awareness to their advantage. They’ve gone straight to work spreading lies in an attempt to score political points and repeal the law. So that is why the new website has been created.
Stand Up for Health Care is a project of Families USA, a national nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans. Working at the national, state, and community levels, it has earned a national reputation as an effective voice for health care consumers for 25 years.
