DISTRESSED INVESTING IN BRAZIL
For too many years, I worried about my health. I didn't have the peace of mind that comes with having quality, affordable health insurance. Obamacare changed that -- and I know that's not just for me, but for millions of people across the country.
Before Obamacare became law, insurance companies could deny me coverage based on my two pre-existing conditions: restless leg syndrome and migraines. And they did -- I was turned down by countless insurance companies, one after another. And that's for non-life threatening conditions -- I can only imagine how scary that situation would be for people struggling to keep cancer or other potentially fatal illnesses at bay.
When I finally found a plan, it had a quarterly cap, not just on care for my pre-existing conditions, but for all of my health care. If I went in for a basic check-up after hitting my cap, for example, I was on my own -- I would have to pay entirely out of pocket.
That meant that sometimes I would put off going to the doctor. I lived in fear of getting hurt or suddenly having to deal with a major medical issue, knowing that if something unexpected happened requiring immediate care, I could be close to bankruptcy. But that's where Obamacare came in.
Thanks to Obamacare, insurance companies can no longer discriminate against Americans like me just because of a pre-existing condition. Now, more than ever, it's time to show our support for this law by fighting for it again.
I'm just one of the millions of people Obamacare has helped, and my story is one of the millions of reasons why it shouldn't be repealed. This law has changed and saved the lives of so many Americans, as families all over the country have gained access to the quality, affordable coverage they need.
That's why it's so important that we keep defending Obamacare and building on the progress we've already made. We can't move backward. It's up to all of us to speak up about Obamacare's impact, and to keep fighting for affordable health care for all.
