The Affordable Care Act is now a thing. President Obama has finally gotten the powers that be in the Supreme Court decided to give Obama and his major healthcare initiative the green light. Michelle Obama stopped by the Yolanda Adams show to urge Americans to get on the Affordable Care Act train because it’s leaving the station with or without you! FLOTUS explained that Americans in need of health insurance can sign up at HealthCare.gov by December 23rd in order to be eligible for benefits on January 1st.

“Hello Beautiful,” Yolanda Adams said as she welcomed Michelle Obama on her show. As an all around super wife and mom, FLOTUS began gushing over he hubby’s health care imitative turned law, hoping that the listeners would understand the urgency in getting insured by telling a personal story about their youngest child, Sasha.
“I come at this issue from a very personal perspective because when Sasha, our youngest, was four months old, she contracted meningitis and we were able to deal with it quickly because we had health insurance and we had a pediatrician that we had a relationship with, who knew us. That’s when it became real to me and Barack–sometimes life throws you these curveballs and there’s nothing like the peace of mind that comes with having insurance. What does it feel like for families who don’t have the resources to make these kind of decisions because they don’t have insurance?” Michelle pondered.

She continued, “That’s one of the reasons why Barack came in here. This is what he ran on the very first time–making sure that every American who needs insurance has access to affordable insurance and we have that now. The battle has been won. We have Obamacare. So now it’s time for us to sign up and that’s the next step.”
Michelle then went on to detail the benefits to signing up for Affordable Health Care:
1. Children under 26 can stay on your insurance.
2. Preexisting conditions will not knock you off insurance or have you denied coverage.
3. Preventative care for women and contraception is free. Women also don’t pay more than men for the same coverage.
4. People who are uninsured are able to get the coverage they need and thought they couldn’t afford.
