Affordable Care Act

As Governor, I watch rising health costs erode the competitiveness of innovative companies and small businesses. And I know that political posturing about the Affordable Care Act is not an approach that will address these problems and move our state forward.

Today, I wrote on Huffington Post about our experiences in Maryland implementing these important reforms, and my thoughts on the dangers of political posturing while American families suffer from a broken health care system.

In Maryland, instead of playing politics, we will use the many tools in the law to improve public health and stop the train of run-away costs barreling down on our children’s future and we will measure success by the numbers – how many families no longer have to choose between health care and bankruptcy; how few people are denied coverage when they need it most; and how many more companies are able to provide health insurance and reinvest savings into their workforce to create jobs.
