A vote for Romney is a vote …
-for someone who supports a Constitutional amendment that bans same-sex marriage.
-to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Legislation that once fully implemented in 2014, will have given upwards of 30 million Americans the opportunity to receive health insurance that would not have access otherwise. Legislation that gives any one making between 133% and 400% above the federal poverty level tax credits to help pay for insurance and the choice of states to receive federal funding and expand Medicaid for those who live below the poverty line. Legislation that prohibits insurance companies from discriminating against people with preexisting conditions and capping the amount of coverage a person can receive. Legislation that allows people to be covered by their parent’s insurance plans until they are 26 years old. Legislation that eliminates copays for preventative care and decreases the cost of prescription drugs. Legislation that drastically improves America’s health care system.
-to defund Planned Parenthood, the nations largest provider of women’s preventative care; an organization that one in five women have visited in their lifetimes and serves as the only medical personnel over half of its patients will see all year.
-to appoint 1-3 Supreme Court justices that believe it is not unconstitutional to tell a woman what to do with her body and will have the ability alter the makeup of the court for decades to come.
-for a Vice President that believes women should be forced to give birth to their rapist’s child.
-for someone who would like to expand the publically funded voucher system for private education. This is money that would be taken out of public schools and be given to private schools, including religious institutions, obscuring the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state.
