Seriously, it is.  So sick of hearing all the complaints.  If I could vote for President Obama a third time I would, unless Hillary runs.  I'd vote for Bill Clinton again too.  Even though I think he's a douche bag of a husband.

**There still seems to be some confusion about obamacare.  Let me try to clear it up:

Medicaid = free healthcare for very low income people, and there are more children on medicaid than adults.  I will never understand how some of you are so bitter that you would begrudge medical care given to children...

Obamacare = not medicaid.  It is a word coined by republicans and meant to be a disparagement of the healthcare laws supported by President Obama and democrats.  Obama has since embraced the term "obamacare" and freely uses it (a common tactic used to repel bullies).  Obamacare refers to the legislation put into effect as the ACA--Affordable Care Act.  These laws are an attempt to regulate the insurance industry, to impose standards that all insurance companies must follow, which should allow access to health insurance for many individuals and families that previously have been unable to obtain insurance or who were formerly being charged exhorbitant rates and forced to jump through many ridiculous hoops.  "Obamacare" compliant insurance is purchased on your state's healthcare exchange or healthcare.gov, it is purchased from insurance companies, NOT FROM THE GOVERNMENT, though the government legislated a tax credit that can be directly applied toward insurance premiums of ACA compliant plans.  Citizens who purchase "obamacare" plans are purchasing insurance, and they are paying premiums.

*Just to clear up some misinformation that many of you seem to be getting:  checkups and gyn visits are completely free because of obamacare.  That's right, if you have an obamacare plan your checkups and gyn visits cost nothing, they do not apply to the deductible and you will not have to pay anything.  Also, on an obamacare approved plan birth control is COMPLETELY FREE.  No copays.  Even iud.  SO THOSE OF YOU CLAIMING TO RECIEVE NOTHING FROM YOUR OBAMACARE PLAN UNTIL THE "HUGE" DEDUCTIBLE IS PAID ARE LIARS, OR TROLLS.  This information is easy to confirm if you look at the healthcare.gov website and check out the faq section.  I believe the birth control portion of the legislation is what bothered the conservatives so much.

No, I don't think I am.  I just think the conservatives are more concerned about making other people listen to their opinions.

 The only thing "awesome" that came out of Obamacare is free breast pumps.  I am knee deep in a shitpile of healthcare coverage issues at my company at the moment thanks to Obamacare. I am not a fan.

This country will be a better place because of Obamacare.  I think Obamacare will eventually change into some type of standardized national healthcare.
