Suzanne Boyd at the Historic Main Pavilion at Virginia Key Beach on Saturday, February 18, 2017. Boyd was able to launch her own business, The Party Company, which produces special events, in part because she was guaranteed health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act. Without health insurance, Boyd, a cancer survivor, likely would have been locked into a job for coverage. At 56, though, she's been running her own company for two years now and worries that if Congress repeals the ACA, she may not have the coverage she relies on for her healthcare needs and her new career.
