That insurance helped me through the trials of breast cancer and radiation treatment etc. Then, some legislators decided to FORCE me to buy new insurance as they caused my own policy to be discontinued!

My premiums continue to go up by 8X the rate of inflation. I am forced to buy coverage I don’t need. I am finally considering going uninsured. At some point I will choose to stop earning money. Who is John Galt?

Once I looked into Obamacare, I came to learn I could finally obtain a basic health insurance plan thanks to it’s tax credit system that affects people like myself with lower incomes. It has enabled me to have Health Insurance for the first time since I lived with my parents as a child.

Maybe I wouldn’t feel this way if insurance rates were not so age discriminatory. If I could pay the same as someone half my age (and I know many people half my age who are only half as healthy as myself and husband), I wouldn’t see this as such a burden.
The ACA saved a young man’s life, who happens to be my grandson. I write my Senator and Congressman every week pleading with them not to repeal the ACA.
