WASHINGTON, July 31 -- Obama for America issued the following blog posted by Elizabeth Zaretsky:
Alex from New Mexico"This campaign is personal for me. As a college student, I now have health insurance because of President Obama's Affordable Care Act. But it's not just about my health.
"My 3-year-old brother has a disability--a condition he was born with that the insurance companies deemed 'pre-existing'. Because of the Affordable Care Act, my little brother is alive today and receiving the care he needs to live a healthy lifestyle.
"My mother suffers from multiple sclerosis. Thanks to Obamacare, she can now afford medication for treatment.
"I'm fighting hard every day to re-elect President Obama for kids like my brother, for women like my mother, and for young adults like me."
