Stephanie Miller cries on the shoulder of U.S. President Barack Obama at a campaign event at Washington Park in Sandusky, Ohio July 5, 2012.

While touring Ohio yesterday, President Obama got an emotional thank-you for his health-care overhaul. Stephanie Miller sobbed as she "thanked him for getting the Affordable Health Act passed," and told the president about her sister who died from cancer. "Even after she was diagnosed with cancer, she was told her income was too high for Medicaid," Miller told reporters after the encounter. Meanwhile, House Republicans are on the move to repeal the legislation that was deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court last week. The House Rules Committee will meet Monday to discuss its plan to quash Obamacare.
