Thank you

President Obama,

I just wanted to personally thank you for your role in initiating the Affordable Care Act.

I am a single father of 5 children. When I lost my job last year, I was forced to sign up for COBRA to continue to have medical insurance. The Affordable Care Act allowed me to buy affordable health insurance for me and my family before my COBRA ran out. It has truly been a blessing to me and my family to be able to continue to have health insurance. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
