    Tell all the people with pre-existing conditions that he hasn't "changed" anything.

      ...i don't already have a pre-existing condition.  Actually i have enough of them that I am uninsurable.  i have 'insurance' through a state program that costs nearly $4000 a year, which at 46 i am ashamed to say my mother helps me pay, that has a $5000 per incident deductable.  I cannot afford to go to a doctor.  And I really need to.  But remind me how great Obama's INSURANCE reform is when he should have been doing HEALTH CARE reform.  But I digress.  I do understand the difference between Obama and Romney.  And if it mattered in my state I would vote for him.  But don't blow smoke up my ass and call him liberal.

        I'll call him a liberal. You can blow smoke up your own ass if believing you won't benefit from Obamacare makes you feel better.

        And if you want Canadian-style health care instantly, without working through the American poltical process, Manitoba is still taking immigrants.
