On Wednesday night, Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama squared off in the first presidential debate. And while many pundits are commenting on who won or lost based on style, what's really important isn't who sounded smoother.
If you have reliable health insurance, you may not think of sports arenas as typical health care venues. But for the millions of uninsured and underinsured Americans, free health clinics, such as the one held last week by Care Harbor LA at L.A. Sports Arena, are often the only option. Thousands of L.A.-area residents waited in line overnight last Monday to receive one of the 4,800 wristbands for Care Harbor’s 5th annual free health care clinic, held Thursday to Sunday.
On April 12, 2006, Mitt Romney signed the Massachusetts Health Insurance Reform into law. In doing so, he proudly stated that the new law would expand health insurance coverage and consumer protections to people across the state. Less than a year later, he touted “RomneyCare” as a model for nation-wide replication.
Andrea’s last post comparing ObamaCare to Romney’s Massachusetts Health Insurance Law (RomneyCare) might leave you with the impression that Romney would do something similar for the nation should he be elected in November. Unfortunately, everything Governor Romney has proposed during his campaign—what we might call RomneyCandidateCare—indicates the exact opposite.

99 percent of sexually active women aged 15 to 44 have used some form of birth control in their lives. This probably isn't news to most women who have made personal family planning decisions and understand why having access to birth control is so important. Having access to birth control keeps women in the driver's seat when making important decisions about their future, like when to take a major step in their career, when to start a family, or when to have a second child.
No one should ever have to choose between getting an education and quality health coverage. Unfortunately, before March 23, 2010, that was a choice that too many young adults had to face. But now, because the Affordable Care Act allows young adults to stay on their parents’ health plan until the age of 26, young adults like Amanda Kary can receive both.
Because she was able to stay on her parent’s health plan, Amanda had the peace of mind that allowed her to stay in school and pursue her dream of becoming a physician.
