Obama Says ObamaCare Has Helped People Feel Like a 'Human Being Again'

'I felt like a human being again; I felt that I had value'

OBAMA: "Marla Maureen from Fort Collins, Colorado, shared with me what it meant to her. 'After using my new insurance for the first time, you probably heard my sigh of relief from the White House. I felt like a human being again. I felt that I had value.' That's what the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, is all about. Making sure that all of us, and all of fellow citizens, can count on the security of health care when with get sick. That the work and dignity of every person is acknowledged and affirmed. The newly insured, like Marla, deserve that dignity. Working Americans like Jeanie deserve that economic security."
