Teddy Roosevelt and Health Reform

President Teddy Roosevelt, while a Republican, was an early proponent of universal health care. So it’s appropriate that for HHS Night at the Washington Nationals ballpark, there’s was a PSA with “Teddy” using healthcare.gov to learn about the new options and benefits under the Affordable Care Act.

While some Republicans raised objections, it’s just another Republican seeing the wisdom of trying to make health care work for their citizens (like some GOP legislators have done in California in voting for Obamacare implementation legislation), rather just continue mindless opposition.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
