Let’s Not Forget: Obamacare Saves Lives

f t e +

Never mind the doomsday rhetoric coming from Obamacare’s critics.

Fact is, the Affordable Care Act barred insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. Obamacare also made it possible for 30 million people to get insured. Bottom line: The law saved lives.

That point was sharply underscored at a recent CNN town hall meeting by a former Republican voter – also a cancer patient and a small business owner – who asked House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., why Congress is rushing to repeal ACA without a replacement in place.

Then Jeff Jeans added: “I want to thank President Obama from the bottom of my heart because I would be dead without the Affordable Care Act."

Like Jeans, numerous others would also be dead if not for Obamacare. Remind the Affordable Care Act’s critics of that critically important fact.
