Response to Letter to Senator
Monday, October 29, 2012 • 8:51am
Dear Mr. Muller:
Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Your opinion is very important to me, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to you.
As you know, on June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court validated the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148). I believe that improving the health care delivery system in America is vital to our nation's progress and that is why I fully support this law. I am proud to have fought for our seniors, our young people, and our middle class families to provide quality, affordable health care. I will continue to oppose Republican efforts to repeal the law, kick young adults off their parents' insurance, force seniors on Medicare to pay more for their prescription drugs and return to the time when insurance companies were free to deny coverage to children with preexisting conditions, charge women higher premiums, and drop coverage when someone gets sick. While this may not have been the outcome you were hoping for, please know that I will keep your concerns in mind as we work to implement this landmark law.
On this, as with any issue, there are many different views. I appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts regarding this important issue, and please be assured that I will keep your views in mind. I also invite you to visit my website (http://menendez.senate.gov) to learn more about how I am standing up for New Jersey families in the United States Senate.
