Large Turnout In Willimantic At Courtney Forum On The Affordable Care Act
NORWICH, CT —Today, Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-02), hosted a forum at Generations Healthcare in Willimantic to discuss efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Well over two-hundred local residents turned out to hear from patients, small business owners, and local healthcare experts and to show their support for preserving and protecting the Affordable Care Act.
“It’s very encouraging to see how many people were willing to turnout on a Saturday in Willimantic and across the country to show their support for preserving the Affordable Care Act – it demonstrates just how important this law has become,” said Courtney. “Sometimes people forget that many of the protections they now take for granted, like allowing young people to stay on their parent's plans until age 26, ban against lifetime limits on coverage, protections for those with pre-existing conditions, and a prohibition against charging women more for coverage only exist because of the Affordable Care Act."
