Message from Maine Can Do Better
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, children can no longer be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions; insurance companies can no longer yank someone’s coverage when they get sick; young people can stay on their parent’s plans until they’re 26; everyone is eligible for free preventable care coverage and seniors pay less for prescription drugs.

If successful, these partisan steps to undermine this landmark health care reform puts the health care of thousands of Mainers in jeopardy.
