In many American counties, especially in the deep South, life expectancy is lower than in Algeria, Nicaragua or Bangladesh. The U.S. is the only developed country that does not guarantee health care to its citizens; even after the Affordable Care Act, millions of poor Americans will remain uninsured because governors, all Republicans, have refused to expand Medicaid, which provides health insurance for low-income Americans. Although the federal government will pay for the expansion, many governors cited cost, even though the expansion would actually save money.

The U.S. is among only three nations in the world that does not guarantee paid maternal leave (the other two are Papua New Guinea and Swaziland). This means many poor American mothers must choose between raising their children and keeping their jobs. The U.S. education system is plagued with structural racial biases, like the fact that schools are funded at the local, rather than national level. That means that schools attended by poor black people get far less funding than the schools attended by wealthier students. The Department of Education has confirmed that schools with high concentrations of poor students have lower levels of funding. No wonder America has one of the highest achievement gaps between high income and low income students.

You're pathetic bonehead! Obama lies about keeping your health insurance policy well, not exactly!:
There's been a lot of talk, mostly drivel propagated by FAUX News and republican talking points, about people getting letters from their health insurance carriers canceling their policies because of Obamacare. What's really going on here? Fact is, it is almost entirely based in right wing ideology rather than verifiable real-world facts.
Wait, Obama killed my health insurance? Oh shit, I'm uninsured now! Not so fast.
First off, this affects a tiny sliver of the U.S. population, less than 4 percent. A lot of those folks are finding out that the health insurance plans they have this year aren't going to be sold anymore. How many? Hard to say, but according to reports from the Kaiser Family Foundation it is ranging from a few hundred thousand to a million. And their coverage isn't changing today; it's changing next year.

Republicans, throughout the country, have pushed a litany of legislation that resulted in limiting women's reproductive rights, access to health care access, and access to equal pay;

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't yet. Shocker.

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care.(Yep, for real.)

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids.

5) In Congress, Republicans have a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life.

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working.
7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

9) Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program.(For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).

Makes one wonder if only Obamacare could provide a brain for republican troglodytes.

Funny they haven't found a lie yet. Unless of course you count the dopey FOX clips where they show Obama in 2008 making statements that were correct at the time he said them.

If he could run again he would win in another landslide against any teabagger they tried to put up..

yea, Teddy and I happen to know several who voted for him and now don't even mention his name and furthermore are horrified that many have lost their health insurance and some are fearful of the future, while others have refused to sign up and WILL NOT SIGN UP for the UN AFFORDABLE health insurance saying is he going to arrest ALL THOSE that don't sign up? and can't pay the fines? further more if he can give all these IMMIGRATION LAW BREAKER illegals amnesty then he can surely absolve us of refusing to comply with his socialistic law.

You will fall for any BS the Saudis feed you.

Yes a statement Obama made in 2008 is no longer true five years later. BFD.

Do I really have to explain to you that in 2008 all existing policies regardless of how shitty they were were grandfathered in and Obama's statements were correct. Of course after that some less than scrupulous insurance companies trotted out new shitty policies that were indeed canceled under the new law.

Yes in hindsight when Obama said you can keep your policy he should have added a disclaimer that said:

"The previous statement applies to all insurance policies issued since the beginning of time, but since nobody can predict the future it is possible that some rubes may buy new polices that do not comply with the law".

Yes I did save $1700 a month and my policy now even covers doctor visits. My previous $3200 a month policy did not. Me and millions of other people could not be happier. It is strange that the only people who have an issue with it are not in the least bit effected.
