Cape Gazette: Let’s work together to fix our health care system, not sabotage it

By U.S. Senator Chris Coons

Over the past few months, I’ve spoken with Delawareans at town hall events up and down our state, and whether I’m in Georgetown, Delaware City or Newark, I hear the same thing time and time again: Put politics aside, work together, and get things done.  

To every Delawarean who feels that way: I hear you, loud and clear, and I couldn’t agree more, because if we do work together, we can actually make changes that will benefit all American families. That’s particularly true when it comes to improving our health care system. 

I wasn’t in the Senate when the Affordable Care Act was passed, and I know it’s not perfect, but I firmly believe that instead of scrapping the progress we’ve made to strengthen the quality of health insurance and give more people access to coverage, we should work together to keep improving it.
