Obamacare benefits working poor, disabled

Don't you find the letters opposing Obamacare tiresome? No one mentions the benefits of the Affordable Care Act. In the recent column by Nicholas Kristof, he mentions by name a hard working truck driver who had no insurance and kept postponing a doctor visit because of the cost. Belatedly, he was diagnosed with colon cancer. No one knows whether it was too late, but at least this poor 47-year-old man will have health insurance come Jan. 1.
