My Grandson’s Jeremiah’s Health and Life Depends on Obamacare!

UPDATE: Jeremiah is now 10 years old and has dreams of becoming a police officer like his uncle. Due to his heart condition that dream will not come true for Jeremiah.
In the following picture Jeremiah is acting as a "cop" wearing a bullet proof vest and pretending that the plastic toy gun he is holding is a real gun. This particular dream will not become Jeremiah's reality.  The Affordable Care Act "ObamaCare" will allow him to have insurance coverage during his entire lifetime so that he can live a productive life.  As a sweet loving boy he will live to have and accomplish other dreams for his life that at this time includes getting married to a pretty woman.

My grandson Jeremiah will be nine years old soon. Prior to his birth an ultrasound revealed that he would have Tetralogy of Fallot, which is a heart defect where there are 4 different things wrong with the heart. Jeremiah has had three open heart surgeries because his body or heart outgrows the corrective procedures. He has been very fortunate because all of his medical expenses including the one million dollars cost of his first open heart surgery at three weeks old were covered by good health insurance.

He will need another open heart surgery at age 11-13. The Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) makes it possible for Jeremiah to have health coverage with his heart condition. What will happen to my precious grand boy if the Supreme Court overturns the entire  health care reform bill?
