Leukemia survivor: Health insurance is essential for all

Kentucky Young Democrat Travis Scott penned the op-ed below for the Courier-Journal this week.


This week, my senator, Mitch McConnell, and Republicans in Congress recklessly held our economy hostage because of a law that has been invaluable to me. Risking the economy for their political games is not amusing to Americans who reap the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.

Let's Tell Congress: Do Your Job!

Dear Young Democrat,

We are now in the second week of the GOP’s closure of the Federal Government.  The Republican Party is holding for ransom federal monies for important programs like Head Start, Women Infant & Children (WIC) Food Program, Meals on Wheels, the Food and Drug Administration and many more due to their opposition to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.  This case of Sore-Loseritis is hurting many of Kentucky’s most vulnerable citizens.  It is a shame!
