Obamacare and Pain

I am in Fargo, ND, taking care of my brother and mother. My mother has injured her leg and can't get around very well. My brother had an emergency surgery for a burst appendix two weeks ago. His recovery is very slow and painful. I was talking on the phone with one of my mom's friends, and was mentioning how much pain my brother was in and how the medications weren't helping much. She said, "Well, when Obamacare comes in, who knows what kind of help he'd get for pain." Does she mean that we won't have any say about our treatment, that "Obamacare" will decide? Or that pain meds won't be covered?  It was a very strange comment, not really clear, but her opposition to the ACA was clear.  I was surprised at her comment and wasn't quite sure how to respond. I just said, "Well, I don't think that's true."
It's smart to anticipate some of the weird attacks that are out there concerning the ACA. If you could give us some comebacks and some good talking points of our own that would be helpful.
