ObamaCare’s 1 Year Anniversary: Meet the ‘Victims of ObamaCare’

Hear from Americans experiencing ObamaCare in a real-life setting

NPR reports, "Exactly one year ago, the Obamacare insurance exchanges stumbled into existence. Consumers struggled to sign up for its online marketplace — and the Obama administration was pummeled."

So, was the health exchanges' first year a success — or something less?

Grabien has posted news clips of Americans contending with the new law since the program launched in our series called "Victims of ObamaCare." The following is a montage of the most compelling tales. 

As ObamaCare literally affects every single American, this is a video every American needs to see.
