Quote of the Day

"You saved my life. I want that to sink into your ears and mind. My President, you saved my life, and I am eternally grateful. I have a 'pre-existing condition' and so could never purchase health insurance. Only after the ACA came into being could I be covered. Put simply to not take up too much of your time if you are in fact taking the time to read this: I would not be alive without access to care I received due to your law. ...Thank you for serving me even when I didn't vote for you. Thank you for being my President."—Brent Nathan Brown, a lifelong Republican who had been "very vocal" in his opposition to the President and the Affordable Care Act, in a letter to President Obama.
