Just sittin' back, enjoying the evils of Obamacare.
My insurance premiums went up by $3.50 a month. But my medicine went down. It went down bigtime. From $2000 a year to $1300 a year. Thats a lot of money. Two different prescriptions went down $20 bucks a month each while the dosage went up.

 My Conservative friends are sure Obamacare is giving me placebos and sugar water. I got to tell you, I feel fine. My medical costs have gone down. They want to repeal it, but poor me, with as little spending money as I have, am able to pump an extra 700 dollars a year back into the economy on things like chinese dishtowels at Walmart and magic shoes manufactured in Burma to wear at Buddy Shows.

Then my daughter, The Water Baby, she is having headaches and stumbling a bit, and being forgetful and stuff. We went to the emergency room two weeks ago. She had a CAT scan that turned up nothing. She is having an MRI next Monday.
Due to Obamacare, the taxpayers are not picking up the bill- she is a full time student and works part time- because due to the evils of Obamacare she is covered on her mothers insurance nowadays, and the insurance pays for all this. Good care too, without signing up down at the county government level and standing in lines and filling out tons of paperwork.
But my Conservative friends- they want to repeal it.

Anyway, say a little prayer for her....I'm not sure how concerned I should be.
And say a little prayer for Mitt Romney, the architech of Obamacare, that should he get elected he will not repeal Obamacare.

This just came to me. It could be a reaction to artificial sweeteners. Stop drinking carbonated beverages and chewing gum. Avoid foods containing aspartame.

Well wishes .... all around. I'm finally in a position that will give me Health Insurance. I'm all for Obamacare. Tell water baby I said a special hello to her and think of her often.

Hey there hope your girl is going to be ok! hope all you americans realise the rest of the world would vote obama.

Littlebow is right about Obama being the only option for 'the rest of the world'. I can't speak for Opper Volta, Lesotho or Mongolia of course, but here in Europe, Obama is by large & far considered the sane option.
