Obamacare Comes Home

My son was recently rejected for health insurance for a pre-existing condition. While he's under 26, my insurance company's window to add him isn't until late summer.
So now Connor is part of the Federal Medical Insurance Pool, part of the Paitient Protection and Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare. This pool covers people with pre-existing conditions until 2014, when insurers can't deny coverage because of these conditions.
Now when I hear tea baggers talk about killing health care reform, I know what's at stake. My son's medical insurance.
