Intersection: Affordable Care Act, Public Defender’s Clothing Drive, and Musician Cat Ridgeway

Enrollment in health insurance under the Affordable Care Act continues through January. Hundreds of thousands of Florida residents are signing up for Obamacare but the big question looming over all this is what happens to that health insurance once President Elect Donald Trump takes office January 20th?
