It eliminates the donut hole on prescription drugs for seniors, and covers their routine checkups. "Obamacare" prevents insurance companies from cutting you off when you reach some arbitrary limit on health care costs, and it prevents insurance companies from denying coverage because of a pre-existing condition. The health care reform also allows young men and women to stay on their parents’ insurance policy until they are 26 years old." (www.congressmanwithguts.com)
