SANDUSKY, Ohio -- An emotional Ohio voter personally thanked President Obama for passing a health care overhaul, relating the story of her late sister's battle with cancer. After Obama's speech in Sandusky, he encountered a sobbing Stephanie Miller, who later told reporters about her encounter with Obama. "I thanked him for the getting the Affordable Health Act passed," Miller said, referring to the health care overhaul the Supreme Court upheld last week.Steve Benen writes:
[T]here are a lot of Stephanie Millers in America and far too many people who've found themselves in the shoes of her sister, Kelly Hines. And while Republicans continue to argue that the uninsured just aren't important, for now we have a president who's championing those who know better.
