President Obama’s re-election means Obamacare is here to stay—what does it mean to you? http://OFA.BO/gdVEWA

Yes he does. :)

Everyone is saying that they “like Obamacare”

We don’t.

We LOVE Obamacare.

Between cheaper drugs for seniors, 2.5 million young americans gaining access to health insurance, coverage for children with pre-existing conditions, free access to preventative services, and a multitude of other benefits as a result of the Affordable Care Act, every American has a reason to LOVE Obamacare. 

(See how the affordable care act benefits you)

So. Why do you love Obamacare?

I’ve never understood why regulating by making people go buy something is somehow more intrusive than regulating by making them pay taxes and then giving it to them. I don’t get it. It was comical to read the Heritage Foundation’s brief attempting to explain why they were changing their position on this. Something needed to be done about this problem. Everyone understood that. So, the Heritage Foundation said let’s do an individual mandate because it keeps it within free enterprise. The alternative was single payer. And they didn’t want that, and I’m in sympathy with that. So now all of a sudden the free-market alternative becomes unconstitutional and terribly intrusive where a government imposition and government-run project would not be? I don’t get it. Well, I do get it. It’s politics.

Another reason to like Obamacare.

If the Supreme Court chooses to overturn President Obama’s health care law, woman, like Judy, will lose their access to free preventative health services, including life-saving mammograms.

The Republicans are going to feel pretty stupid for spending the last three years fusing “Obama” and “care” in the public mind.

As David Axelrod put it the other day:
“Can you imagine if the opposition called Social Security ‘Roosevelt Security’? Or if Medicare was ‘LBJ-Care’? Seriously, have these guys ever heard of the long view?”

Most candidates promise to do something great, even historic, on their first day in office.

But this year’s Republican presidential candidates are oddly and singularly focused: They’d all repeal Obamacare on Day One, and take our health care system right back to where it was.

These candidates apparently don’t care who would lose services, pay more, or instantly find themselves uninsured, because they’ve all placed their bets on this promise getting them into the White House.

What would repeal of the health care reform law mean to you?:

  • Cheaper drugs for seniors in the doughnut hole REPEALED
  • Coverage for children with pre-existing conditions REPEALED
  • Free access to preventative services REPEALED
  • Women won’t have to pay more than men REPEALED
  • Protection from insurance company abuses REPEALED
  • Being a woman won’t be a pre-existing condition REPEALED

Because of Obamacare, I can stay on my mom’s health insurance for a few years. This helps cover my prescription coverage which pays for my birth control.

Without the pill, I get huge ovarian cysts. Before Obama got his plan through, I wasn’t covered, and ended up missing two days of work when the last one erupted. I almost missed my final exam while in the ER for it. Great times.

So thanks, Obama! Now I don’t have to miss work because of this issue!!! <3

Maybe you’ve seen this photo going around.

It’s two years to the day since President Obama signed health care reform into law, and there are thousands of stories like this out there.

If one of them is yours, share it by completing this sentence: “I like Obamacare because…” And break out paper and a marker to take a photo if you’ve got ‘em handy.
