On Thanksgiving Day, millions of Americans gathered with family and friends to celebrate all the things they have to be thankful for. Many took to Twitter to express those thanks.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) joined them, tweeting her thanks for the Affordable Care Act…
#ThankfulFor the Affordable Care Act, which ensures million Americans who have pre-existing conditions have access to affordable care.

It wasn’t long before that blew up in her face:
When the narrative is more important than the reality we are heading to horrible places. History will Judge you VERY harshly.

Wish they could find a way to provide for those who need while not jacking up my premium and co pays. My insurance has gone up 5k yr.

Can you stop calling it affordable? It is for the people getting it for free, the rest of us subsidize their free care with high premiums and deductibles.
