President Obama,
I want to thank you for our new healthcare. I have Coronary Artery Disease, and other complications with my health, I was unable to acquire Health Insurance because of not being able to work and my husband make $156 to much to qualify for assistance. It is hard to believe in our Country, that it would be possible to not be able to see a doctor because you did not make enough money to pay for Health insurance. I applied for Obama care, and with help because we are low income my premiums are low so we can afford it. I started my insurance in January and in March had a heart attack again. This time I could go to the Hospital. And Thanks to you pushing to make all American Citizens insurance. We don't have a $50,000 Hospital bill hanging over our heads, My husband is 69 and I am 61. Thank you so much our lives are better because of your pushing so hard against all odds to make sure all Americans can get and afford health insurance. Not only the affordability but I am alive today without I may not be.
Thank You So very much.
