Investors Voice Support for Affordable Care Act
The Tri-State Coalition for Responsible Investment joined a coalition of 119 faith- and values-based investors and public health groups in signing a letter to Trump and members of Congress voicing support for the Affordable Care Act. Led by the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, the group praised how the ACA expanded access to quality and affordable health insurance to over 20 million previously uninsured Americans. The statement also warns that repealing the health care law would have a “destabilizing effect on jobs, businesses and our economy, and would further jeopardize the health and financial security of millions of Americans”.
The letter specifically asks Congress to:
1.) Preserve the affordable Care Act.
2.) Work collaboratively with key stakeholders to improve the ACA and rein in health care costs.
3.) Make the fiscal and political commitment necessary to expand quality health care coverage to all Americans.
