  1. We need the ACA to remain in place. The so-called repeal and replace idea from congressional republicans is only going to make matters worse, particularly in states like Maine where there is already less support for universal health coverage. The ACA is not perfect but it is a start. For those people arguing it is too expensive I say: where were they before it? Premiums were increasing annually with no check anyway! With pre-existing conditions uncovered and women’s healthcare continuing to be more costly than men’s. Please vote on behalf of the people of your state rather than tie the party line. Thank you.
