Dear President Obama,
Thanks so so much for your "Affordable Health Care Act", also known as "Obamacare". It's really going to be such a benefit to myself and my family, in terms of coverage and cost. I'll just love paying 258% more for my monthly health insurance premiums. This is so helpful, as of course I would rather pay $700 a month for basically the same coverage as I had, compared to the $271 per month plan I have been paying for my husband and 2 children. That extra $429 per month is no problem - we'll just not eat anymore. Hubby and I need to diet anyway. Or let's see, I'm sure there are other things we could do without. Hey, I know - we can just shut off our electricity and stop our garbage and water service - that way we'd at least be able to eat mac & cheese while we freeze, sit in the dark and watch garbage pile up. Oh wait - without electricity I can't make mac & cheese. I suppose we could sell our house and find something cheaper than the fancy 20+ year old manufactured home we currently live in, but guess what? We are also underwater with our mortgage, so that plan won't work. I suppose we could just let it foreclose and add even more problems to the country's financial situation. Maybe we could just borrow the money every month, like the government does. Do you have some to spare? I only have a black and white printer, so I don't think printing money is an option for me.

I can only hope and pray that when my state's insurance exchange website has all the info on it to purchase insurance through that (Oct 1st) it will be cheaper and hopefully qualify for some tax break.
