Celebrate Two Years of Health Care Protections! Join our Tweet Storm this Friday!

Justin Kolikof

Deputy Director of Digital Strategy

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, people across the country will never again have to worry about being denied health coverage because of a pre-existing condition, being dropped from coverage because they got sick, or paying extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses.

But these critical benefits are being ignored by state officials who are using taxpayer dollars to challenge the law in court for political gain.

On Monday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on the law, with a ruling expected by the end of June. We're confident the Court will uphold the Affordable Care Act, but we can't take this challenge lightly.

That's why on Friday, March 23 - in honor of the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act - we're partnering with Mom's Rising, the National Council of La Raza, and Young Invincibles on a Tweet storm to show the justices that Americans support the law and want to see it upheld.

Getting involved is easy to do, just share your thoughts on how the Affordable Care Act is making a difference for your family and include the hashtag #HCRatStake. Or, feel free to use our sample tweets below.

Thanks for your help and we look forward to tweet-storming with you this Friday!
