"I support it 100%, have pre-existing conditions (cancer survivor and RA sufferer) and am proud to call it Obamacare. He's our President, and he got it passed. Nobody else did it, he and his Democrats did. So he should get all the credit. I want it to go down in history as Obamacare... Proud Democrat, proud of my President, and proud of Obamacare. With affordable health care, I might be able to retire instead of having to work until I drop for medical coverage."

Why is it so important for women to vote this year?
"As a nurse midwife I think what these Republican men are trying to do is appalling! Contraception is an important public health measure and it makes sense economically (even for insurance companies!). It's a disgrace to take women's health and make it a political issue again this election year. Women vote! There's even more reason to do so this year. So please don't stay home!"
We're in the final stretch before the Election, and this time couldn't be more crucial for our women. Or for you.
