Ask them anything!

35:04 Good evening, my name is Ashley, I live in Northampton.

When I lost my Mom last year and was diagnosed with anxiety and depression, the Affordable Care Act is the only reason why I can afford that medication. And other than that (applause) there are so many people, that you don't know, that are healthy on the outside and they're not so healthy on the inside. And the Affordable Care Act takes care of them as well.

And so, sir, I want you to tell me. This is my healthcare, this is my Medicaid expansion, what specifically is your plan for mental health? (applause) For people like me, for people like them, that don't have the resources of people like you. Thank you.
