Broke single mom with no healthcare coverage.

I have been counting down the days until the affordable healthcare act kicks in and I can sign up. I have been unable to find employment for the past couple of years (!) and the money I earn from working for my mom's small business is not enough to cover my barest living expenses, let alone to purchase healthcare insurance. I have felt as if I have been holding my breath, waiting for the Affordable Health Care act to kick in so I can finally have affordable healthcare coverage. I am the mother of an eight-year-old little girl. What will happen to her if I get sick and can't afford healthcare? It keeps me up some nights, worrying for her. Americans like me deserve affordable healthcare now!
