• The Affordable Care Act

    The Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act is a victory for the American people.

    As a cancer survivor, a person under the age of 26, a recent college graduate, and an American, Obamacare means the world to me.

    It means that I can no longer be denied coverage due to my pre-existing condition. It means that I won't face the same hurdles when buying my own healthcare as I look for my first job. It means that I won't be a burden to the American taxpayers if I ever get sick again and lose my insurance. It means that insurance companies no longer have a monopoly on my health. It means that my doctor will have the final say in how I can be treated.

    The reality is this:
    The law is designed to help patients. Healthcare is supposed to be about the sick. It’s not about the doctors, the nurses, the insurance companies, the interest groups, or the politicians. It is ultimately about providing the necessary medical assistance to those who need it and are suffering.
    The Supreme Court ruled in favor of this law. And I want to thank you all for making this dream a reality for me, and the millions of people like myself.
