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.
