This month, heart disease and stroke advocates are hitting Capitol Hill with a strong message – the U.S. needs health care reform now. 45 million Americans are uninsured – many of them with heart disease or stroke, or at-risk for cardiovascular disease. We need Congress to invest in research and prevention, so we can ensure quality, affordable health care for all and a heart healthy and stroke free future for our children. Act now for health care reform!
Americans are struggling with the rising costs of health insurance and health care. Millions are finding it increasingly difficult to afford the coverage they have, meaning that they are less likely to receive appropriate care. And those who have little to no insurance suffer far worse medical outcomes. That is why preventing heart disease and stroke is a smart investment for our healthcare dollars.
Health care reform in the United States will not be complete unless it provides the best, most appropriate and affordable care for all Americans – including those with heart disease and stroke.
With 45 million Americans uninsured – many of them with heart disease or stroke or at-risk for cardiovascular disease – our patients have a big stake in health reform. We also need Congress to invest in research and prevention to ensure a heart healthy and stroke free future for our children.
That is why the American Heart Association is hitting Capitol Hill this month with advocates like you to make some noise and show elected officials that there is a national outcry for health care reform.
Your action is needed now more than ever as the economy impacts families in need of meaningful healthcare coverage. Please join us by signing our petition to your elected officials – and make some noise for health care!
