HEALTHCARE IN VIRGINIA. Tom is the right person to lead this fight 12MAI17

Tom Perriello for Governor
TOM PERRIELLO understands healthcare is not just about dollars, about what we can afford to provide for those in need. He understands this is a moral issue, and that we have a moral responsibility to provide the best healthcare available to those who need it and can not afford it. People of faith are called on to take care of the least among us. For Christians Jesus Christ himself clearly instructs His followers to care for the sick, the poor, the hungry, the thirsty, the least among us (Matthew 25: 31-46). Go to Tom's issues page on healthcare for his opinions, proposals and plan and then check out his stand on the other issues we must deal with in Virginia and I'll bet you'll become a supporter, maybe volunteer, maybe make a donation and maybe will vote for Tom Perriello in the Democratic primary on 13 JUN 17 too.

Last week’s House vote significantly raised the stakes of this year’s election in Virginia. If Obamacare is repealed, a whopping 79% of Virginians could be uninsured. More than 600,000 Virginians could lose coverage. Premiums could go up by thousands of dollars for coverage of everything from a pregnancy to asthma.
Republicans are trying to take us backward. They want to rip affordable health care from the people and give all the power back to the insurance companies. Under their repeal plan, insurance companies can jack up their rates, reduce coverage, and even deny coverage to millions with pre-existing conditions. Real people will lose their financial security and the care they need. This will happen in every state, city, community, and neighborhood in America.
If Republicans are successful, we’ll have only one line of defense: Democratic governors and state legislatures. That’s why I’m asking you to stand with me in this important fight in Virginia.
Tom Perriello was a champion for affordable health care in 2010 and stood with President Obama and our administration even if it cost him his seat in Congress. I am confident that as governor of Virginia, Tom will never back down from Republican attacks -- and will always fight for what’s right for Virginia families.
We have to fight like lives are on the line, because we know they really are.
Thank you,
