A personal story about healthcare in America

My daughter had a routine checkup with her pediatrician today.  He discovered that her heart was beating too fast.  He wanted her to have an EKG.  We drove her to a local hospital and within five minutes of walking in the door, she had her EKG.  Unfortunately, the EKG showed a problem and we're booked to see a specialist tomorrow morning.

Would my daughter have such rapid access to hospital procedures and specialists under Obamacare?  I sincerely doubt it.

Right now, Americans have access to the best healthcare system in the world.  And the liberals in Washington want to destroy that system.  Are there problems with the system?  Sure.  And those problems can and should be solved.  But we don't need to throw the baby out with the bath water.

How did the visit to the specialist go?

Thanks for asking Elizabeth. All is well. My daughter does have a heart condition but it is one that is easily controlled by medication and she will almost certainly grow out of it by the time she's four or five.
