    I was diagnosed with a life long disease this year. If the ACA is repealed I will be put at risk to lose my coverage due to what will be considered a preexisting condition. I do not support the repeal but rather support an improvement. Do not go backwards!

    Please do not repeal until you have something better (good luck with that) in place. We are paying an awful lot more for our insurance currently but we also have two college aged children under 26 yrs old who are insured under us. I really appreciated the "pre existing conditions" clause.

    We should not repeal the ACA without a detailed replacement.

    My daughter has Type 1 Diabetes and could lose her health insurance coverage. She has an insulin pump, continuous glucose meter, a blood glucose Tester and all of these require equipment changes every few days as well as insulin itself. Without the ACA to help, she wouldn't be able to afford to LIVE. We know of a family whose 26 yr old T1D daughter died because after she was kicked off her parents plan she couldn't afford her insulin and tried to limit what she was taking - she couldn't afford the $300+ per bottle for more. Repealing will hurt people and their families and cause more deaths!

    It is not "Obamacare," it is the ACA- use the correct terminology, because I have patients who even say they love the ACA but hate Obamacare without knowing they are the same thing. People's lives are at stake here. Improve, don't remove.

    Please do not repeal the ACA until you have an adequate plan to replace it with--a plan which has received public feedback and support.

    I come from Oklahoma, a working class state with high un-insured rates and struggling rural hospitals. Repealing the ACA will cause more hospitals to close, less access of many people to hospital care, and more uninsured people. It will also cause pre-existing conditions to limit health care on those who need it most. Do not repeal the ACA. Support your people.

    Millions depend on this for healthcare. There will be no alternative plan if ACA is repealed for those with preexisting conditions like my sister who needs constant care & medical attention to treat bi- polar depression. Please don't allow her to lose her coverage & bear the burden of cost.

    Until a viable and reasonable alternative to the ACA is ready to be enacted, it should not be repealed. People depend upon the ACA for coverage and should not have that taken away until an alternative is available. Do not legislate just to play politics. Protect the people that you represent.

    CEO greed and insistence upon multi-million dollar salaries is to blame for the rise in premiums, it's not Obama's fault! If the ACA is repealed and all of you with pre-existing conditions find yourself being denied coverage, don't start looking for a way to blame THAT on Pres. Obama, as well! It will be ENTIRELY on the shoulders of Trump, Ryan, McConnell, and Priebus!

    People count on the ACA for their very lives. Please do not repeal it without having a comprehensive replacement ready.

    Affordable health care should not be considered a privilege. Please show you care by voting against a repeal.

    Repeal repeal repeal! It has caused insurance premiums to rise, given fewer options of insurance plans, and made those of us whose health requires that we see specialists much less able to do so. And they admitted to blatantly lying to us just to pass the act!

    The ACA ensures mental health parity for all insured not just those from companies with 50 or more employees. The ACA also protects those patients with pre-existing conditions, children up to age 26, veterans, and has a lifetime cap. All these are absolutely critical to protect Americans.

    The ACA has allowed millions to finally have quality health insurance. My son and I are included among those people. With the repeal we among many will lose our health insurance. Affordable healthcare should NOT be a luxury afforded only to the rich.
