Obama: 'Many' Americans Don't Realize the Ways ObamaCare Is Helping Them

'100 million Americans have gained free preventive care like mammograms and contraceptive care under existing plans'

"This law is bringing greater security to Americans who already have coverage. Because of the Affordable Care Act, 100 million Americans have gained free preventive care like mammograms and contraceptive care under existing plans. Because of this law, nearly eight million seniors have saved almost $10 billion on their medicine because we closed a gaping hole in Medicare's prescription drug plan. We're closing the doughnut hole. And because of this law, a whole lot of families won't be driven into bankruptcy by a serious illness, because the Affordable Care Act prevents your insurer from placing dollar limits on the coverage they provide. These are all benefits that have been taking place for a whole lot of families out there, many who don't realize that they've received these benefits."
