This is a short fact sheet on health care reform and employment, circulated by the White House Office of Public Engagement in response to the 2011 Congressional bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act of 2010. This repeal effort is in part based on the rationale that the reform is, and has been, bad for jobs creation. The fact sheet shows that data from the Congressional Budget Office strongly indicate that health care reform has reduced government health care costs while having no negative impact on jobs.
CHLP fights stigma and discrimination at the intersection of HIV, race, health status, disability, class, sexuality and gender identity and expression, with a focus on criminal and public health systems. As part of this work, we support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change rooted in racial, gender and economic justice. We do this through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources.
