Today, George Allen said that he wanted to be the
deciding vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Here's what it would mean for Virginia if George
Allen got reelected. . .
66,000 young adults in Virginia would lose their
insurance coverage under their family plans.
Virginia seniors on Medicare would pay an average
of $635 more per person for prescription drugs when they
hit the donut hole.
1.5 million Virginians with private health
insurance would lose access to free preventive service
376,000 Virginia families covered by insurance
would lose an average of $115 in insurance company
The Commonwealth of Virginia would lose $1 million
in funding to help fight unreasonable insurance company
Nearly 3 million residents (including more than 1.1
million women and 817,000 children) could face lifetime
limits on benefits from insurance companies.
Insurance companies could once again deny service
for pre-existing conditions.
This is what the health care system looked like the
last time George Allen served in the Senate. Now he
promises to go back to that system.
George Allen already had a chance to do something
about health care costs the last time he was in the Senate.
And what did Virginia get? Premiums doubled and 12 million
more people became uninsured during the decade that
included his term.
Virginia can't afford six more years of George
Allen in the Senate.
