I moved from Chicago to Los Angeles about two years ago and had a month of time when I was not covered by health insurance. I'm a healthy person — a couple of minor little health problems. I could not buy private health insurance for myself. I am a healthy, adult person with a good job that just had this month of not being covered. And that shed a new light on healthcare. If I did have a pre-existing condition, that people—they can’t buy health insurance. It’s eye-opening.
I appreciate ObamaCare in a new way that. I have paid attention to the details of ObamaCare, and I’m concerned that Romney would repeal that with no specifics about how he might possibly replace it.
