Carolyn S. from California wrote the White House in October to share how much she appreciates the Affordable Care Act -- and to thank President Obama for his efforts to see it through.
Simply put, the Affordable Care Act has saved Carolyn from financial ruin. In the same month that she signed up for health insurance under the ACA, Carolyn found out that she needed emergency surgery. With her old insurance, she would've had to pay more than $14,000 out of pocket, and would have lost her house as a result.
With her new insurance plan, however, she only has to pay $2,250. Now, she can "concentrate on healing instead of stressing," she says.
