Politics,Beltway Confidential,Charlie Spiering

As the second anniversary of the Affordable Health Care act approaches, the Obama campaign is reaching out to supporters to share their stories. Currently featured on the website is a story about a young supporter who says that he convinced his skeptical Dad that Obamacare is a good thing.

"Although my Dad is a die-hard Republican and dismisses health care reform with the pejorative term "Obamacare," he has trouble denying the fact that it has helped me," he writes, adding that because of Obamacare, he was able to get a phiysical screening that showed he had anemia.

"I could not have afforded the physical if I was not on my Dad's healthcare plan. I don't know how the rest of the health care overhaul will pan out, but this provision specifically cannot be denied by neither Republican or Democrat. Thank you!!!" - Josh R. of Washington.

But Josh, who paid your dad's insurance premiums?
