Keystone Progress and Protect Your Care will deliver a birthday cake, celebrating RomneyCare to Mitt Romney’s campaign headquarters in Harrisburg, and we are inviting you to share a slice of cake with us at 1 PM at Romney for PA HQ, 20 N. 2nd Street, Suite 300, Harrisburg, PA

April 12th marks the six year anniversary of the Mitt Romney’s healthcare plan for Massachusetts, which served as a template for President Obama’s landmark legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

On the campaign trail, Romney continues to attack the Affordable Care Act, threatening to repeal healthcare reform if he wins this November.  However, his criticisms are invalid because he created the blueprint.

Exchanges: Both programs create exchanges where private insurers compete. 

Individual Mandate:  Both require individuals to purchase insurance, and both offer subsidies to those who can’t afford it as a way of expanding coverage to the uninsured.

Young Adults:  Romney’s Massachusetts plan allows young adults to stay on their parent’s health insurance plan until they are 26, a component of the ACA that has provided coverage to more than 2.5 million more young adults. 

Today, benefits of the Affordable Health Care Act continue to kick in. This year, insurers must see that at least 80 percent of their premiums go to benefits and quality improvements. In 2014 we can look forward to the competitive health insurance marketplace, which will provide consumers with a clear understanding of benefits offered by insurance plans.
