Republishing this because I think it's important to see again, while many of us are doubting and second-guessing. We need to execute, to make it work. Not doubt, but DO. For her, and for thousands of others.


I'll let this speak for itself, though I'll transcribe it for those who don't have their reading glasses up to Rx. I will say, though, that if you're not convinced that this upcoming presidential election is important, that it doesn't matter, you should see and read this with an open mind.


I am Obamacare. I'm 34 and my job does not provide benefits or health insurance. I was in pain for days and went to the ER. I discovered my uterus was full of tumors. I couldn't pay for surgery and because it was now a "pre-existing condition" insurance companies could (and did!) turn me down for coverage.

But because President Obama passed health care reform, I was able to get PCIP insurance and the surgery I needed to get well. Thank you President Obama for helping me live and heal when others said no.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
