Dear Mr. President,
I have the deepest respect for you. I think you are amazing. I have a 77 year old friend who told me that because of the ACA that if she had cancer she would not be treated. This is not the first time she has said something like this to me. I asked her where did she get her information....what was she reading? It drives me crazy but it scares me too. I am 65 and I am still working as a teacher. I am afraid to retire and not have health insurance and decent money to live on ...if you can call a teacher's salary decent money...especially after all the money I have spent for my education (Master's plus 70 college hours).

So please start advertizing..speaking out....about Obamacare and what it can do. People are afraid because the White House (your staff) has not publicized to the public enough about the ACA.

I think you are the best president we have ever had in my lifetime. You are a good husband and father. There is something to be said about that. I also love Dave Grohl. You lucky guy. You have met him before!
