Affordable Health Care For All

Representative Conyers is a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  The health care reform bill has improved the lives of seniors, young adults, small businesses, and many others in Southeast Michigan and has taken power away from insurance companies and given it to patients and doctors. Unfortunately, Republicans in Washington - many of whom are in the pockets of the insurance industry – are trying to repeal the law and return us to a time when insurance companies could discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions, charge women more for coverage just for being a woman, and force young adults off of their parents’ insurance plans, leaving them defenseless against accident or illness.

Representative Conyers will defend the ACA and press for additional reforms to our health care system that prioritize patients over health insurance industry profits.  He is the sponsor of H.R. 676, which would create a publicly-funded, privately-delivered “Medicare For All” national health insurance system.  Such a system would ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care.
