Throughout his presidency, President Obama has worked every day to make our state and our nation both stronger and better.
Thanks to his leadership, together we have:
- Rebuilt our economy
- Passed the Affordable Care Act
- Addressed the reality of climate change
- Created millions of jobs
- Fought for equality
And so much more. With his final term coming to a close, we want to thank him for all he’s done for California and the nation.
What President Obama and California Democrats have accomplished over the past eight years in the face of unprecedented Republican obstruction is truly incredible. And it’s all at risk.
Republicans’ first priority is to repeal the Affordable Care Act — which expanded health coverage to more than 20 million Americans, brought California’s uninsured rate from 17% before it passed to a historic low of 7% today, and made health insurance cover more and cost less for Americans with employer-provided plans. The Affordable Care Act required free preventive care, extended health coverage to dependents up to age 26, capped out of pocket costs, and eliminated coverage gaps for people with pre-existing conditions.
As we prepare for the unique threats of a Trump administration and GOP-controlled Congress, President Obama’s progressive legacy should serve as inspiration to each of us to fight even harder for a better California and a better nation.
