The SOMA Action Health Care Committee
The Healthcare Committee believes that healthcare is a basic human right. Our immediate goal is to block repeal of the Affordable Care Act (the ACA), also known as Obamacare.
We will be participating in efforts to educate the public about the real issues involved in the threatened repeal and to raise public awareness about its real likely consequences. The ACA is not free of problems or issues, but the problem with it was not that it went too far, but that it did not go far enough.
Specifically we will be encouraging lobbying of Congress, and supporting local, targeted lobbying and pressuring of Republican House members in nearby congressional districts: Leonard Lance (R-NJ, 7th District) and Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ, 11th District).
