“There’s a plane leaving for anywhere you want right now, and in an hour, and in a day, and in a year. You can get out whenever you want, it’s comforting I think.”

  7. I know people who think Obamacare is a subversive socialist plot, people who think it’s great so far, and those who are still on the fence. I want to add my two cents because I think I represent an important constituency of people who are generally too exhausted to speak up in this debate.
I am a US-born citizen who has worked hard since I was a teenager, put myself through college and grad school with no help from parents, who has a serious work ethic. In the year 2000, although I had some health insurance, the most minimal plan was all I could afford when I had a major health crisis. I ended up with 50K in debt and it was not long before the hospitals came to collect that debt. I had excellent credit so I did the only thing I thought I could do at the time which was to put all of those medical expenses on credit cards.
For the past 14 years I have struggled, often working two jobs, to try and pay off this mountain of debt. I make a decent salary but I essentially live at the poverty level and I still have about 12K to pay off. I am always forced to have a job that provides health coverage because I can be and have been denied health insurance due to pre-existing condition.
There are many people out there, just like me, who can be denied health coverage or charged excessively for it because of a medical condition; people who work hard, support families, and are not on welfare. In addition, many of them have health issues that make each day a struggle. 
No one should struggle for the rest of their lives because they got sick. It seems so simple to me. And no sick child should be unable to go to a doctor in our affluent country. 
Maybe Obamacare is not the perfect fix but it is a step in the right direction. Something needed to be done.

    By Yumi Okita, these gorgeous hand embroidered moths are deceptively large with some reaching almost a foot wide, the technical sewing skills you can see on the wings are perfection and such beautiful variety. 

    LOVE LOVE these
