The ACA end result

When President Barack Obama took office, he said he was prepared to roll up his sleeves and get to work. I think everyone would agree that health insurance is one area where he also took off his tie and opened the top button of his shirt.

But he’s done this, as he’s done everything, with only the very best interests of all the American people in mind. And the president has proved it with the Affordable Care Act and HealthCare.gov.

It may have had a rocky start, which most new programming does (you rarely see a version No. 1), but the end result is undeniable, literally.

No one can be denied coverage again — regardless of a pre-existing condition.

Preventive care annual checkups, vaccinations and mammograms are free.

Children may remain on their parents’ health insurance policy until they are 26 years old.

Insurance companies can no longer set lifetime limits on your coverage.

These are but a few of the benefits of this uniquely all-inclusive plan.

The president has done the hard work; now all you have to do is sign up for insurance at www.healthcare.gov. This is not about politics. This is about care. And you never want to be thinking, “Why didn’t I … ?” when it comes to your child or someone you care about. The deadline to start the enrollment process is March 31.
