Obamacare saved my hubby's and my financial lives. MY STORY.

"Obamacare" saved hubby & financial lives. If I didn't have The Affordable Health Care, I would have been stuck with a $56,000 (( 56 Thousand Dollar )) Hospital bill.

My ACA (Obamacare) plan paid my entire hospital bill. Before being on "Obamacare" I had been denied 3 times for pre-existing condition. No Insurance company would insure me because I had moderately HIGH blood pressure. I was a healthy 50 year old woman but Blue Cross & even Kaiser would not insure me.


<< THANKS PRESIDENT OBAMA & Democrats for giving me get Health Insurance and the 30 MILLION PEOPLE who now have health insurance thank you also. >>

Now I'm on Medicare and I'm scared to death Donald Rump and the evil GOPigs will destroy Medicare. I have congestive heart failure due to contracting viral flu 2 years ago. If I have to be hospitalized and I don't have Medicare, WE WILL LOSE OUR HOUSE.

WE WOULD HAVE NO PLACE TO LIVE. WE WOULD BE HOMELESS

Please folks, do something to help our country.

3. Try not to worry

Chances are very good that no changes will be made. the public is very riled right now and Congress is quite aware of us.

4. I agree and it may come down to open rebellion at some point.

They are really playing with fire on this issue.

5. K&R

I can't bear to hear these tragic stories. This is unacceptable in a country as wealthy as ours. These bastards will kill people only to get their tax cuts. It's obscene.

6. Obamacare saved my brother's life...

and finances - I was lucky enough to be able to personally thank my Congressman Frank Pallone for being so instrumental in the passage of the ACA when I hosted a candidate meet & greet at my home. The Congressman showed up to support our local candidates and I thanked him for saving my brother's life - he asked me how - I replied, "Obamacare"

9. I've got a similar story.

Self-employed and unable to buy insurance because of a pre-existing condition. One hip was completely deteriorated and I was in constant, agonizing pain for a good 3 years. I was one of the first people to enroll in the pre-existing condition pool and had surgery almost immediately. I credit President Obama with giving me my life back.
