After Obamacare ruled unconstitutional, profit-driven critics risk our 1-year-old son’s life

USA Today

Our son’s life could depend on the final outcome of a politically driven lawsuit that he’s too young to even know about. On Dec. 14, a federal judge in Texas ruled the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unconstitutional, potentially undoing the most positive step in American health care law in more than a generation.

Last year, when our son Vidar was born, he had several heart defects that required immediate surgery. At just five days old, doctors operated and successfully repaired his heart, but instead of recovering he ended up on life support.
