Janet Clark My story is this: my husband and I worked to pass Obamacare because we believed all Americans should have access to quality healthcare, like we did through his workplace. We never thought it would affect us. Then one day I came home and found my strong, apparently healthy husband dead in the backyard. He had experienced cardiac arrest. Within one week I was off his plan. I purchased COBRA for a year and then looked for a less expensive plan. I applied for Blue Cross and was turned down due to pre-existing conditions: arthritis and bunions. I was so happy when Obamacare went through and I had access to healthcare. Never thought it would be me who needed it, but it was. Thanks, President Obama!

Jennifer Holden My biggest problem with Obamacare: My partner and I no longer have health benefits from an employer, and the ACA has made health insurance more accessible and less expensive for us.Oh wait, that isn't a problem!

Laura Walker Oh, my, where to start? Let's see, I now am able to get annual exams for breast cancer, colon cancer, depression screening, bone density tests and overall wellness exams FOR FREE! My insurance (thanks to Medicare) covers eye care and dental care, plus fitness program INCLUDED! I also have 24/7 access to health professionals. And I'll tell you what else: I required extensive tests last year to find out what was wrong with my heart and guess what?! My insurance covered all but $250. The bill came to $7,000! Yes, thanks to #ACA, my coverage has not only improved through Medicare, it's broadened and my premiums (MA) haven't risen nearly as much as they did before this.
You have to be the most cynical, or the most insulated official to keep beating the dead horse about ACA being such a travesty. The only promises broken are those of GOP - #GOPBROKENPROMISES

Nancy Lazarus Taylor Thanks, Obama!! Because of the ACA, I have health insurance and with a pre-existing condition. Without this, I would most likely be dead or on gov't assistance, something else you, CMR, don't like. And I managed to do my taxes myself. No nightmare. Next fallacy to debunk?

Robert Fairfax I work for cancer care northwest. We actually have more patients with insurance and fewer having to choose treatment over bankruptcy. Cathy, I'm a die hard conservative and I'm asking you to stop just slamming Obamacare. Fix it, change it or come up with a better idea! Thanks
