Letters to President Obama


Bob Melton

December 18, 2014

Dear Mr. President,

I thought you would like to know that because of the ACA I went to see a Doctor for the first time in 12 years. I am having pain and the ACA enabled me to at least get examined and now treated. I'm 61 years old and in pretty good shape (At least I think so) but without your help would have had NO insurance. At all. Thank You again Mr. President. You remind me of President Roosevelt. A man was weeping on the street when FDR died. A reporter asked, "Did you know him, you are so upset?" The man replied, "No, I didn't know him. He knew me." I feel that same connection to you Mr. President.
