    To the imbecilic woman with the "Obamacare is immoral" sign.
    I hope you don't have kids in college (i doubt your kind thinks education is important) or a pre existing condition (at your age you might just have) or in your senior years, if a catastrhophic doesnt kill you first because insurance doesn't cover it, or don't need medical or prescription health because you will, once again, have to pay anywhere from $2K to $4K out of pocket.
    I rather be immoral and healthy!!!!
