My family has benefited from Obamacare. We have managed to carry my son three years after college on our insurance. The first year we received a substantial rebate from then Blue Cross since their profit exceeded the designated percentage in the ACA. 

The whole family have had free annual checkups. I have had two colonscopiesfor free. I have a stress test,two lung x-rays,and a heart exam. No charge. Over the past two years I have had to visit neurologists several times.  I think the total cost $100. I had physical therapy three days a week for 5 weeks. Zero charge.

And my medicine for Parkinson's cost a YUGE $10 per month. Did the GOP open the drug donut whole in this bill?

Now,I am merging into Medicare. But for the past 7 years, despite health alerts,my family has had "health security", knowing every doctor's visit doesn't end up like my dentist visits, which run $600-1,200 over the last 4.

Thanks Obama. But then he had a big heart.
