Man who says he 'would be dead' without Obamacare confronts Paul Ryan on the law's repeal
and Congress is going full steam ahead on a repeal, with no replacement in sight."Just like you, I was opposed to the Affordable Care Act," Jeans told Ryan. "When it was passed, I told my wife we would close our business before I complied with this law."
But then he said the law saved his life. Soon after it passed, he said, he learned he had cancer and was given six weeks to live. He said he was able to get insurance, which allowed him to receive treatment, through the Affordable Care Act.
