NPR had an article today that lists some of the lesser known Obamacare provisions that will be lost if the ACA is repealed.
Still want more talking points before you go? Here is a link to the Health and Human Services page that list the provisions of the ACA by year: https://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/facts-and-features/key-features-of-aca-by-year/index.html#
