• Matt: Why I volunteer

    Matt, Michigan

    “The Affordable Care Act is really personal for me because I have a spinal cord injury. I broke my neck six years ago, and I’m paralyzed from my shoulders down. I want to go to law school, and without the Affordable Care Act, getting health insurance with my pre-existing condition and without a consistent, paying job would have been a nightmare. Now I can stay on my parents’ health insurance until I’m 26.

    “By volunteering, people have a chance to really make an impact on the future of not only our country, but on people like me who have a lot at stake in the President being re-elected and having the ability to continue carrying out the policies that are best for this country and all of the people in it.”
