Barack Obama surprised the mother of a disabled daughter

At first glance it is a normal Instagram picture: A mother holds her little daughter on the Arm, and together they pose in front of a painting of Barack Obama. In your Post, Natalie Weaver, the former President of the United States for the Reform of the health system, is grateful: “I explained to her that he is the President who has fought for health insurance, although she was born with many diseases,” she writes.

At the age of one year, the rare Rett was diagnosed in her daughter Sophia’s syndrome, which impairs brain development, how “The Independent” reported. Without Obamacare, she would not be alive today.

Five days later, the big Surprise then. Barack Obama responds to the Instagram picture and thanked them in a comment at Natalie, and to all the people that supported Obamacare. “I wasn’t the only one who has fought for Obamacare, Natalie. There were millions of people who are just like you. Thank you for everything you do for Sophia and so many other people,” writes the 44. President of the United States.

Well, this was unexpected. It's not every day that @barackobama ends up in your comment section! Thank you for your kind message. I'm so proud of the impact #sweet Sophia has had on this world.

Obamacare paved the way for affordable health insurance

The “Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act”, better than Obamacare known, helps, among other things, children like Natalie’s daughter, Sophia. She suffers from deformities of their face and their hands and feet.

Through Obamacare, U.S. citizens must present a valid health insurance. The government subsidies make it possible for citizens with limited financial resources, get access to insurance. Another core aspect of the Reform is that people should not be rejected with pre-existing conditions of health insurance – the small Sophia could be helped.

The law is since April 2014 and was, in spite of some Attempts by Obama’s successor, Donald Trump, not abolished. In the United States are saved every day life.
