@snowwolf I guess the best response I have here is that Obamacare helped a lot of people who made no money and desperately needed healthcare. It's not perfect, however, and I wish it had been closer to the ideal of certain European countries so that people who made ~just a little too much money~ could have qualified as well, like your grandma. Statistically, it did help a lot of people, but it's difficult to be enthusiastic about numbers when it doesn't help the people closest to you. I'm sorry your aunt passed away, and I'm sorry if my words seemed unnecessarily callous.
