Oh, by the way, Obamacare works

It's, of course, not the universal care program we still need. But this moderate health insurance cost control reform we passed a few years back actually does what it is supposed to do and people benefit from that.
Nearly eight in 10 people who buy health insurance through the federal online marketplace can get coverage for $100 per month or less, after subsidies, according to a new report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Louisiana consumers can choose from six insurers for coverage in 2015, up from five insurance companies a year ago, the report shows. Louisiana consumers also have more plans to choose from, an average of 44 statewide compared to 33 in 2014.

Nearly 102,000 in Louisiana enrolled for health insurance through the federal marketplace for 2014
Meanwhile, we're about to elect a Senator whose entire campaign was based on the fact that he is a doctor who wants to take this away from us.  Because we hate stuff that works.
