Cooper Campaigning as an Advocate for the Affordable Care Act

Bethesda, MD – Now is the time that President Barack Obama most needs the support our nation’s state legislators. The President, troubled with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act’s Health Insurance Exchanges, apologized for having “fumbled the rollout of his signature legislative achievement,” according to an article in this morning’s edition of The Wall Street Journal.

The President’s efforts to ensure that every American has access to high-value healthcare must now be taken to the floors of our nation’s state houses. With the public’s interest, the public’s health, and the health of our economy at stake, it has never been more imperative for Democratic legislators to stand as a stalwart defender of the Affordable Care Act. As a Democratic candidate for Delegate in the Washington metro area, I am compelled to voice my full support for the President’s signature legislative accomplishment. It is now my privilege and our collective responsibility to tell the President that he need not question our loyalty.

Maryland is an early implementer of Obamacare and, unfettered by the partisan gridlock that obstructs Congress’ ability to provide Americans with a basic human right, the Maryland General Assembly must use its 2:1 Democrat to Republican ratio to ensure that every Marylander has access to affordable, quality healthcare. Cooper’s three point plan to drive down health care costs can be found on his campaign website:

Prior to his run for office, as a Policy Advisor on the Consumer-Purchase Disclosure Project at the National Partnership for Women and Families, Cooper wrote comments pertaining to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act on the use of quality measurement to improve value in health care. Some of those comments were incorporated into final regulations in the Federal Register.

Cooper has been endorsed as a healthcare professional and as a candidate for Delegate of District 16 by both Richard Sorian, Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2010-2012), and by Van Mitchell, Principal Deputy Secretary, Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (2004-2007).

Jordan P. Cooper is a Democratic Candidate for Delegate (MD-16). He was born, raised, and educated in Montgomery Country, and lives in North Bethesda. Cooper has extensive on-the-ground legislative experience in Annapolis and currently represents 2,000 District 16 constituents as the President of the Luxmanor Citizens Association. He is an appointed member of the Western Montgomery County Citizens Advisory Board and was formerly a Policy Advisor at the National Partnership for Women and Families. He is a public health expert with academic, legislative, and professional health policy experience. He received a MSPH from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and a BA from Vassar College.
