“Repeal of Health Bill’s 1099 Provision Could Take Funds from Prevention,” Wall Street Journal, September 13, 2010.
The White House Office of Public Engagement on the Affordable Care Act is seeking "real life" examples of individuals benefiting from implementation of PPACA (i.e. those getting preventive care who were previously unable to do so).
Trust for America's Health is collecting examples. Please send all examples to email@example.com and PFCD will pass them along. Be sure to include where they're from, contact information, etc.
Trust for America’s Health is circulating a letter to Congress in support of preserving the Prevention and Public Health Fund and is asking other organizations to sign on as well. To date, over 300 organizations have signed the letter. It reads:
As the Senate considers the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act (H.R. 5297), the undersigned organizations strongly urge you to oppose the use of the Prevention and Public Health Fund from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as an offset for an amendment offered by Senator Johanns (No. 4531).
