In the video, Congresswoman McCollum notes the success of the ACA in expanding access and improving health care quality for all Americans, no matter whether they get insurance from their employers, buy it on their own, or receive Medicare or Medicaid. Congresswoman McCollum also notes the dire effects of Republican repeal plans and offers a preview of her plans to fight to save the ACA.

“You can count on me to strongly oppose every Republican effort to repeal the ACA and put at risk the health and financial well-being of millions of Americans,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “I am asking you to join me in fighting to keep Minnesota healthy, to help our seniors, to protect our families from losing insurance, and to maintain vital consumer protections that keep our communities strong.”
