Is Obamacare truly too expensive?

Either ways, this coming election involves big money and your ability to control it to help your children get a better education, to start a business or to keep your house, whatever you envision.

All you got to do is vote, and all you got to loose is, well too long for a dairy.

In 1997 when I moved my family to Richland, WA from Edimburgh UK, I liked my new bank. My children were growing up fast at the time, with all the found memories that now go with it.

Today, I could not shake away my doubts that my dear old bank has truly lost memory in a bad way, not just in a convenient way and this is why I think so.
