Gene Farley has passed away at age 86. Gene and his wife Linda, who preceded him in death, were supporters of SWWAP throughout the last 10 years. Gene was involved with helping plan the November 7, SWWAP ACA program. Gene's passion was the advocacy of single payer for America, and he worked tirelessly for the cause. The Farleys presented 2 programs on the subject of health care, and presented a documentary at another event. Their passion, grace and optimism will be greatly missed throughout the progressive community. 

 

Gene and Linda are both buried at the Farley Center for Peace, Justice and Sustainability.

FACT SHEET: The Affordable Care Act:
Secure Health Coverage for the Middle Class

The Supreme Court's decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act ensures hard-working, middle class families will get the security they deserve and protects every American from the worst insurance company abuses.  This law was also specifically designed to give States the resources and flexibility they need to tailor their approach to their unique needs.  With the uncertainty about the Court’s decision behind us, it’s now time to focus on implementing this law in a smart and non-bureaucratic way that works for the middle class.

Benefits and Protections for the Middle Class: The Affordable Care Act includes numerous provisions to keep health care costs low, promote prevention, and hold insurance companies accountable.  If you’re one of the 250 million Americans who already have health care – whether through private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid – the Affordable Care Act is already making your coverage more secure.

  1. Insurance companies no longer have unchecked power to cancel your policy, deny your child coverage due to a pre-existing condition, or charge women more than men.
  2. Over 86 million Americans have gained from coverage of preventive care free of charge, like mammograms for women and wellness visits for seniors.
  3. Nearly 13 million Americans will receive a rebate this summer because their insurance company spent too much of their premium dollars on administrative costs or CEO bonuses.
  4. The law has already helped 5.3 million seniors and people with disabilities save an average of over $600 on prescription drugs in the “donut hole” in Medicare coverage.
  5. The law’s provisions to strengthen and protect Medicare by fighting fraud will continue.
  6. The law has helped 6.6 million young adults who have been able to stay on their parents’ plans until the age of 26, including 3.1 million young people who are newly insured.
