God Bless Barack Obama! I think the day will come that the ACA will be as revered as Social Security

My husband's company has always had good insurance, so Obama did nothing for me,right?

Well, right now I have cancer.

Thanks to the ACA -

My husband can change jobs at any and get the same good insurance.

My doctors communicate with me and each other electronically. Sitting here right now looking more like a pin cushion than a hedgehog, not having to repeat blood work is a big plus.

My case is supervised by a doctor who isn't being overworked and closely monitored by a Nurse Practitioner who has time to ask questions - a change in medical practice that offers better care at a lower price.

Info is being gathered and examined to determine best practice for all kinds of conditions - including mine.

There are no limits on my medications - I'll have all the chemo I need.

There are no limits on any hospital care - something I'm hoping to avoid, but hey, who knows what's ahead?

1. I know it's not single payer, but SS is a different animal than when it first came out; I expect good changes ahead.

2. This isn't meant as a sympathy post - just a reminder of what the ACA means to a lot of people.

5. that's the ultimate irony...

teabaggers cry for freedom and the ACA gives one freedom to seek a new job without losing their insurance
