The sign-up period for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, starts next week. The Arizona branch of Organizing for Action has kicked off a campaign to encourage enrollment and counter what they say is misinformation being spread about the health-care program. Emergency medicine specialist Doctor Nicholas Vasquez told a Phoenix event that Obamacare’s goal of insuring everyone is vital to lowering the cost of health care.
Vasquez says the more people who enter a health insurance pool, the less it costs for each individual. Organizing for Action grew out of President Obama’s re-election campaign, with the goal of supporting his legislative priorities.
