If George Allen Got Reelected...
Richmond, VA—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 coverage.
- 376,000 Virginia families covered by insurance would lose an average of $115 in insurance company rebates.
- The Commonwealth of Virginia would lose $1 million in funding to help fight unreasonable insurance company premium increases
- 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.
