Recently, I got this Email from Obama's chief enforcer, David Axlerod:
I like Obamacare.
I'm proud of it-- And you should be, too.
Here's why: Because it works.
Obamacare means never having to worry about getting sick and running up against a lifetime cap on insurance coverage. It gives parents the comfort of knowing that their kids can stay on their insurance until they're 26, and that a "pre-existing condition" like an ear infection will ever compromise their child's coverage.
It's about ending the practice of letting insurance companies charge women 50 percent more--just because they're women.
And Obamacare can save seniors hundreds of dollars a year for prescription drugs--and gives them access preventive care that is saving their lives,
President Obama has never lost sight of the fact that this reform is about people. People like his own mother, who spent the last years of her life fighting cancer--and fighting with insurance companies, too.
That shouldn't happen, And because of Obamacare, it can't.
So, next time you hear someone railing against Obamacare, remember what
they're actually saying they want to take it away.
And, today, stand with me in saying, "Hell yeah, I'm for Obamacare".
P.S.--Side note: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?
Has David Axlerod ever heard of The Constitution?
