Obamacare Won the Election -- Now Medicare and Medicaid Must Win the Fiscal Showdown

After two years of raging debate about health care and the most expensive and polarizing presidential election campaign in our nation's history, Obamacare won on Nov. 6, and it's here to stay.
This election secures the guarantee of high quality, affordable health care for every American, without insurance company abuses and hassle.
President Obama has won a second term that guarantees a bright future for the Affordable Care Act, and the Senate has turned more progressive. This strengthens the hand of supporters of the middle class. Lawmakers should not even consider beneficiary cuts to Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security during the upcoming lame duck session of Congress. People depend on the protections in these programs, and they are the backbone of the American dream. We need to defend them, not cut them.
