Without the ACA, I Would Absolutely Be Dead Toady

I was forced by a mysterious lung disease to leave my position. I never smoked, but both lungs failed. Therefore, I had to acquire personal healthcare and eventually had to receive a double lung transplant at The Cleveland Clinic. Without the pre-existing conditions clause of the ACA, no one would have insured me (even though doctors insisted I leave my job), and I would absolutely be dead today. We are practically bankrupt anyway due to medical bills, but I am here for my family. I wrote a personal thank you letter to President Obama. It does not seem the present Congress has any thought to folks like me.
