Dear Friend -
One of the most pressing issues facing Congress is how to proceed with repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.
As you know, the House and Senate recently passed, and the President signed, legislation that begins the repeal process. But there are still crucial questions that must be answered about the replacement.
Proponents of repealing the ACA say that the law has failed to live up to its major promises and that premium increases and lack of access to care have hurt Virginians. Meanwhile, opponents of repeal point out that the law is working and that those who need insurance the most may lose it.
My view is that American people deserve a patient-centered system that favors quality and choice, not a government-centered system. That why I have cosponsored H.R. 277, the American Health Care Reform Act of 2017, legislation which repeals the Affordable Care Act and replaces it with healthcare reforms that ensure everyone has access to quality, affordable health insurance and that individuals have more choices to find a healthcare plan that works for them and their families.
But I want to know what you think.
Please take a moment to respond to the short survey below. Once we collect responses, I will contact you to report the results and lay out my thoughts on this critical issue.
Question: How should Congress proceed with repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act?

I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me. Your opinion helps shape my thinking as I represent you in Washington.
