My Grandson Jeremiah’s Pre-exiting Heart Condition Is Covered Under Obamacare

President Obama's determination to keep his 2008 campaign pledge to reform health care in this nation resulted in him signing the Affordable Health Care Act "Obamacare" on March 23, 2010. The hard three year fight led by President Obama ended with the Supreme Court’s decision that upheld the constitutionality of The Affordable Health Care Act.

 The “Obamacare” victory is important to the 30 million uninsured Americans who will now have the opportunity to have health care coverage. It is also a personal victory for me and families like mine that have a family member with a pre-existing condition. My grandson Jeremiah who has a pre-existing heart condition can’t be denied health care coverage. This is a big f---- deal for me because Jeremiah, who is 9 years old, will need his fourth open heart surgery at age 12 or 13 years old. Additionally, insurance companies can't deny him a health care policy as an adult.
