This is the story of a little eight year old girl from South Carolina named Olivia.

I am sure there will be those who will look for anything that could possibly put a damper on things, but the projection for enrollment in the Affordable Care Act by the end of March 31 was for around 6 million, but 7.1 million was the final figure.
