Mardi Benedict oversees a medical office in Fort Mohave, Arizona, where her husband, Richard, has a successful practice as an obstetrician and gynecologist. She's a conservative activist, part of the informal movement known as the Tea Party. "I was in tears on inauguration day for the first time in eight years; happy tears, because there's been a lot of unhappy tears" under President Barack Obama, Benedict said. One of the reasons for tears were the small reimbursements the Benedicts' medical practice received under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also called Obamacare, the government's health insurance program.
