Are you thankful for your Obamacare coverage? Share your story.

On the one hand, starting in January, the Republican Party will have complete control over both the U.S. House and Senate, Donald Trump will be sworn in as President, and the entire lot have promised repeatedly to kill the Affordable Care Act, aka "Obamacare".

On the other hand, the GOP hasn't managed to figure out what the hell they plan on actually replacing the ACA with (if anything), even though they've had over 6 years to come up with something and have voted to repeal it dozens of times. They insist that the ACA is a complete disaster; for years they refused to admit that it helped anyone; more recently they've grudgingly admitted that it helps some people, although they still claim that it hurts more than it helps.

In light of this, the Center for American Progress Action Fund has whipped up a simple website, ACAWorks.org, in which they ask people who have been helped by the ACA to let them know what Obamacare has meant to them.

This Thanskgiving, if you're thankful for your Obamacare coverage--either via the ACA exchanges, Medicaid expansion or are between 19-25 and are on your parents' plan--take a few minutes to tell your story.
