That Darn Obamacare…

…is working.

According to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, over 14 million seniors have now personally benefited from Obamacare provisions.

Medicare reports that 14.3 million seniors in America have already received important preventive benefits under President Obama’s health care law. In the first few months of 2012, seniors were able to take advantage of a number of preventative health services, including an annual checkup, without paying any deductibles or co-pays. “Thanks to the health care law, millions of Americans are getting cancer screenings, mammograms, and other preventive services for free,” said acting CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner. “These preventive services are helping people in Medicare stay healthy and lower their health care costs.”

Staying healthy and lowering costs.

Sounds like the stuff of socialists!

Of course the real, ongoing threat to the Republican party is that Americans may decide they like a little socialism with their morning coffee.

    As an unemployed 25 year old, I have personally benefitted from the ACA. Every day this month I’m checking the news to see if the Supreme Court is going to declare that I am to lose my insurance coverage. Aside from my other issues with the Republican party, their vehement disapproval of the ACA guarantees no current Republican ever receives my vote.
