Sanders ThumbVERMONT - The Affordable Care act was put in place to provide Americans with better health security, by lowering costs, expanding coverage, and guaranteeing more options. According to Senator Bernie Sanders, it has done just that.

But Sanders fears that if the number of people able to afford healthcare doesn’t continue to increase, millions will be affected by not receiving appropriate heath services. 

The Republican Budget, passed Tuesday, plans to cut the Affordable Care Act. 

Senator Patrick Leahy expressed his thoughts on the republican budget saying that "it places the rich over the poor, the powerful over the vulnerable, and corporations over hardworking families. The real responsibility will lie when Congress exercises its power of the purse to fund programs to which Republicans have proposed devastatingly drastic cuts".
