No on HR 1215. You can’t place a federally imposed limit on the value of my life! (1 of 3 today)

Vote NO on HR 1215

For those with federally funded health care, HR 1215 caps medical malpractice payouts to $250,000, overruling any state laws that declare such caps unconstitutional. It punishes those insured by the ACA (or veterans insured through the VA) by placing a federally imposed limit on the value of their lives.

Call Congresswoman Julia Brownley: DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

Script:  I’m calling from [zip] to ask Rep. Brownley to vote “NO” on HR 1215. ACA insurance doesn’t make me worth less than a privately insured person.

Today’s markup of H.R. 1215, the so-called “Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017,” is the twelfth time since 1995 that we have considered legislation intended to deny victims of medical malpractice and defective medical products the ability to be made whole and to hold wrongdoers accountable.
