Obamacare saved 50,000 lives through hospital safety provisions. Republicans still hate it.

It's time to talk more about the ways that Obamacare is improving our healthcare system instead of letting Republicans lie about it as much as they do.

Obamacare isn't perfect, but it's saving lives in a number of different ways.
