Quote of the Day 3/26/2014

Let me tell you about one of these people, a 27-year-old Oklahoman named Kendall Brown. When Kendall was in middle school, she was diagnosed with a serious medical condition. Her medication and treatment are expensive, and when Kendall was growing up, her mom would sometimes take on clerical jobs just to get insurance. At 27, Kendall can no longer stay on her mom’s plan, and until recently, she was uninsured because of her pre-existing condition. Today, Kendall is covered by a quality, affordable plan she bought through the marketplace — which she told us meant “life or death” for her. And because of the Affordable Care Act, her new insurer can’t legally discriminate against her just because she’s a woman, or because she has a health condition.
