Affordable Care Act: personal stories

I know most of the people in the video below, and even count one or two of them as friends.  That doesn't lessen the impact of their stories of how the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, has helped them; it deepens that impact.

We all know someone whose life has been made just a little bit better by the ACA - maybe those of us who just can't afford a decent policy on the private market, maybe a child who is able to be part of their parents' insurance until age 26, maybe a neighbor or friend with a preexisting condition - and those people shouldn't be sacrificed on the altar of frustration with a website that wasn't perfect from the start.
