Press 2 to hear the survey. You have to listen to a long message (1 minute) about how Speaker Ryan wants to dismantle the ACA, and how President Obama had the nerve to veto the bill.
After his gabbing, press 1 for support of the ACA (Obamacare).
Unfortunately, (202) 225-3031 doesn't work (his mailbox is full) but with the other one, I was able to take the survey (but leave no messages).
I'm not American. I live in Scotland where I have the luxury of benefiting from the NHS and also having the option of accessing private healthcare through my work. I am proud that my country enables residents access to health care as a right (as flawed and as strained as our healthcare is right now, I don't think that's a reason to discount that healthcare is accessible to all tax paying UK residents).
Just because YOU might not benefit from the Affordable Care Act because your pay bracket discounts you isn't a reason to not support something which supports your fellow American citizens. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be someone who needs it? If the Act isn't perfect, be a driver for change, encourage your politicians to do their job - getting rid of something imperfect or because it wasn't begun by your political alignment isn't the right solution.
I believe that all animal owners should provide health care to their pets when required.
I also believe that in this day and age in a first world country health care is something that should be available to all - regardless of how much you earn or the fortunes you were born with our the job you hold.

By the CBO's accounting, Obamacare will produce a surplus. Gruber says the law will "actually lower the deficit by about $100 billion over the next decade and by $1 trillion in the decade after."
So the repeal fits well with the Republican philosophy of making sure the rich get as much money as they can.
