Stories From People Around the Country Who Are Benefiting From the New Health Care Law
The White House Blog
Thanks for spreading the word. I spoke to one person last evening who declared that 68% of people are against “Obamacare.” Of course that percentage is wrong. It’s more like a 49% favorable, 48% unfavorable split. But once the truth gets out, the nation will realize the great accomplishment the Health Care Law is.
Our son just graduated from college in May, and of course in this economy, and at age 22, he’s not yet found a full-time job. On the other hand, he’s put together a *fantastic* set of part-time and free-lance work, so he’s making some money, getting great experience, and building a network. It’s a perfect launch in so many ways.
If it weren’t for the new law, however, without a single full-time employer, getting health care coverage would be difficult and expensive. As it stands, we simply extended his coverage under our family policy, making it possible for him to do the kind of work he needs to do – and be protected by good health insurance. He’s participating in the economy, he’s building his independence, and he’s covered. Thank you President Obama and Congress members who made this possible!
