Choosing between paying the rent, food or health insurance is a heart-wrenching decision many working people have to make. Just ask Regina Holliday , who lost her husband to cancer because they were unable to pay $1,000 a month for health care. The Affordable Care Act makes it possible for 33 million working people to obtain health care coverage. When you vote this November, take a minute to consider the Holliday's story, featured in a Families USA YouTube video . House Republicans have tried to repeal health care reform 33 times . Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, would also repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Romney even claimed that "people don't die" because of a lack of health insurance. Romney said in his CBS "60 Minutes" interview:
We do provide care for people who don't have insurance. If someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care.
