heath care

dear president obama, I appreciate all that you do and I realize you have such a difficult job. However, since obama care, my life has become very horrible. My husband and I have always worked very hard. Always had insurance and all was fine. Since the new care, it has been awful. I have 4 children. My husband and I work in restaurants. We were fine. But now it is just a difficult situation. My husband works in a place that has less than 40 employees. I work for a corporation that only a few of the employees have to work over 30 hours to maintain the insurance. Recently, my husbands employer decided to not deal with health insurance. We have been with out it for about a month and a half. So now my husband is sick in the hospital. We have paid for health insurance for such a long time. Since your care, I feel it has been not very good for people that work soo hard.. I am sorry. I just have to say since the Government has taken it over I feel at a loss. Thank God my kids are old enough that they have gotten all of their shots. I just hope we will be okay. Thank you for listening., and I hope all is well,
