President Obama, surrounded by Congressional leaders and supporters, adds his signature to the health care reform bill in the East Room of the White House in March 2010. Some members of Congress want to repeal our health care reform, but the White House and others are fighting back.

A new Congress has arrived in Washington. Unfortunately, rather than ushering in an era of bipartisan cooperation for progress, conservative Congressional leadership already has set a precedent of prioritizing political stunts over the best interests of its constituents. By introducing legislation to repeal health care reform, the new leadership is sending a message that it will be business as usual for the next two years: protect special interests at all costs.

If health care reform is repealed, more than 1.2 million young adults under the age of 26 could lose their insurance coverage through their parents' health plan at a time when it is difficult to find a job. Also threatened is protection against loss of insurance coverage because you get sick.
