Moments after House members voted to repeal another provision in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, House Democrats hosted a news conference to promote the law on the eve of its second anniversary.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn (D-S.C.) introduced a handful of Americans who have—or will—benefit from the Affordable Care Act’s provisions, including the mother of a young child with a pre-existing condition, a senior citizen grateful for relief in his prescription drug costs, and a small business owner who will be able to maintain insurance coverage for employees.
