US President Barack Obama eats ice cream at a local restaurant in Durham, New Hampshire, on June 25, 2012. Obama has opened up a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney in a national poll released last week, even as a majority of respondents say the country is on the wrong track. Most surveys in recent weeks suggest a tight race for the White House culminating in the November election, but the new Bloomberg National Poll has Obama leading his Republican challenger 53-40 percent among likely voters.

Obamacare! Gay marriage! Legalizing drugs! I’m moving to Canada to get away from all of this shit!

Umm… guys, I think there’s some stuff about Canada we need to talk about.

I really can’t stop laughing holy shit

Canada, I apologize on behalf of my country for sending you these people.

Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait

Wait wait

Wait.

They want to move to Canada because they disapprove of free health care?

That’s…too…stupid…for words.

My name is Stacy.
I started working full time when I was 15 to help support my 2 little sisters after my father left us.
I became a career woman at an early age and worked my way quickly up the ladder. I was managing a small nursing home by the time I was 17, and running the Recreation Therapy department for one of the largest Alzheimer’s care centers in the country when I was 24.
When I was 25 things changed.
I was in a horrible car accident, which resulted in permanent disability, chronic pain, and triggered a chronic illness.
I lost my job, after 10 years of 60+ hrs per week, because of my injury.
Losing my job meant losing my health insurance.
I racked up over $100,000 in hospital bills in under 2 years.
Because doctor’s offices and pharmacies don’t send a bill like a hospital does, I cannot afford to see my physicians or fill my much-needed prescriptions.
Now I am 27, and after living what felt was hopeless, endlessly painful existence for 2 years— today I FINALLY felt a glimmer of hope.
With the Supreme Court’s decision today I will now be eligible to receive coverage, regardless of my pre-existing conditions. That will prolong my life, and make it so much more LIVABLE.
Thank you, President Obama.
