facts and because, in general, I like him. He is something of an Obamabot.

My California buddy and I had a mutual friend who died before he was 30 because he could not both pay rent and buy his meds and he chose to pay rent. So, out of love for him and heartbreak over his untimely death, my politics buddy and I were both very tied to health care reform.

My politics buddy had once said that his "last straw" with Obama would be no public option in Obamacare. However, he continued to defend Obama on other issues well fter Obamacare passed without a meaningful public option. But, that was indeed the last straw for me.

I have great health insurance (although it gets cut back from time to time). But, I just can't say, "I've got mine." I can't.
