Someone we loved is smiling down today. "Now you know why I endorsed this man," he's most probably saying. #Obamacare

1. Awww, nice. It's been a

long, difficult slog to get this done. I know there are lots of issues to be ironed out, but Obamacare is reality! I'm sure our president is a happy camper regarding the honest enthusiasm he's seeing.

2. You can see that "happy camper" smile all over his face,

babylonsistah. Long slog indeed.. remember PBO courting Kucinich in Ohio, the Supreme Court on the edge of our seat drama?! Not to mention all the negative stuff online of why it wasn't good enough so nothing should be done?

Whew!

3. I'll take that man's care and guidance

over Rethug vultures any day!

BTW, thanks for those wonderful pics. I've had to designate a separate thumb drive just to store my DU collection for backup, because periodically they crowd out everything else and then I offload, knowing there's a fresh batch on the way.

If I yearned for any expensive electronic goody, it would be a digital frame at least 3'x5' with a terrabyte storage capacity. Now that would be something. I suppose I could stream from a computer to a big screen tv. But I'd still rather have a separate, dedicated GIANT digital frame.

11. the affordable care act

will reduce the number of hours loved ones spend haggling on the phone with insurance companies who are denying a particular service ordered by a physician for a child, an elder or any other family member with a terminal illness.

this is huge.

That last picture of Obama and Teddy priceless. I so wish he could have been there today. Yet I know he was looking down and smiling~

Thanks Cha. Beautiful thread!

14. Hey she..

How's the birthday girl at this end of the spectrum?

President Obama looks so happy at least about ACA happening today... when we know he's got a world of problems on his mind with the homegrown terrorists shutting down our government.

15. Hey Cha~

I'm great, thank you.

It was my party in the BOG (thank you) that helped me through the work day. Someone posted Happy Birthday on the assignment board today. Everyone one, all day wished me HB. It was sweet!

I love PBO's smile in the picture. Awesome that the web site had so many hits. We did it Cha and it feels great!

17. That woman could be me.

Although I've had Medicare for many years, I'm beyond thrilled for those who will not have to go through what I had to. To be blunt, Obamacare will go a long way toward preventing more people like me; and that's a very good thing!

21. Hey William.. it was called that by the republicon's at first

as a derisive name that would be his "waterloo". But, PBO came to own it and now it's taken off and the gops wished they'd never opened their mouths about calling it "Obamacare".

And, yes he does Care!

23. Absolutely!

I love how he took ownership of the "Obamacare" term and turned the tables on the Republicans, making them look like the foolish asses they are.

I am so happy that, despite the obstruction and all the haters, his agenda is being realized. This is what I voted for!
