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 their kids can stay on their insurance until they're 26, and that a "pre-existing condition" like an ear infection will never 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 on prescription drugs -- and gives them access to preventive care that is saving their lives.

President Obama 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 away.

It’s the two year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. Since then, the law that almost everyone calls Obamacare has been doing exactly what the other side has hoped it wouldn’t do: It’s been working.

Presidents tried to bring health care reform to America for nearly a century. This President got the job done.

That’s why I’m signing this petition to say I like Obamacare.

      Because my pre-existing conditions precluded me from private coverage when I lost my last job (though I was maintaining my income through self-employment and able to afford a reasonable high premium) and this lack of coverage ultimately led to me becoming fully disabled and on Medicaid, a setback that has taken me years to get the doctors and services I've needed to recover. In fact, because of the damage done to my health when I was without coverage, my "full recovery" will now include a lifetime of medication, doctor visits, additional therapies, and very supportive employers. And because I've since met far too many people who are in or have gone through this very same thing, which is something that should never be allowed to happen to anyone, anywhere, period.

      Because I am too sick to work so I have to take cobra which is $611 a month. If I am too sick to work then how can I afford my cobra? But if I don't keep it then I wont have insurance for my preexisting conditon.

      We are one of the FEW countries who do not have national health care. The time is now! Yes, the bill needs some work and the Republicans need to stop trying to overturn it and roll their sleeves up and get to work!

      Because it`s embarrassing that the US does not offer universal healthcare to its citizens, especially children.

      Health Care should be a universal human right -- "Life! Liberty Pursuit of Happiness!" -- and fits beautifully the code we as Americans live by (as well as every other civilized country in the world!).
