The Supreme Court’s landmark ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act proved that Jay Inslee was right to vote in favor of health care reform.
He took a stand to enable children to stay on their parents’ health insurance plans up until the age of 26, protecting the health of young adults. He ensured that survivors of diabetes and other diseases will never be turned down for health insurance on the basis of pre-existing conditions.
His opponent, Rob McKenna, instead chose to join other states in filing a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act.
Washington state cannot afford to be governed by someone who puts tea party interests over the health of hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians. We need a leader who will stand up for the people of Washington state. Inslee’s record in Congress – from voting against the Iraq war to voting against the deregulation of Wall Street – shows that he is the right person for the job.
