Critics don't want to admit that they've run out of criticisms of Obamacare. The website is working, enrollments are surging, and millions of Americans are getting affordable, high-quality health insurance.
All the public and media talk about AOL's "distressed babies" in the last few days were more than just a distant public policy issue to my family. It happened to us.
