redditor captainpixystick explains the Affordable Care Act to you like you're five.

Bob:
Hi, insurance company. I'd like to buy some health insurance.
Insurance company:
No. You had cancer when you were 3 years old, and the cancer could come back. We're not selling you health insurance.
Bob:
It's not my fault I got cancer when I was three! Besides, that was years ago!
Insurance company:
If we sell insurance to you, we'll probably lose money, and we're not doing it.
Bob:
But I need insurance more than anyone! My cancer might come back!
Insurance company:
We don't care. We're not selling you insurance.
Obama:
Hey, that's totally not fair. Bob is right, he does need insurance! Sell Bob some insurance.
Insurance company:
If we have to, I guess.
Mary:
This is cool. Obama said the insurance company has to sell insurance to anyone who needs it.
Sam:
Hey, I have an idea. I'm going to stop paying for health insurance. If I get sick, I can always go buy some insurance then. The insurance company won't be able to say no, because Obama's told them they have to sell it to anyone who needs it!
Dave:
that's a great idea! I'm not paying for health insurance either, at least not until I get sick.
Insurance company:
Hey! If everyone stops paying for insurance, we'll go bankrupt!
Obama:
Oh come on Sam and Dave, that's not fair either.
Dave:
I don't care. It saves me money.
Obama:
Oh for god's sake. Sam, Dave, you have to keep paying for health insurance, and not wait until you're sick. You too, Mary and Bob.
Mary:
But I'm broke! I can't buy insurance! I just don't have any money.
Obama:
Mary, show me your piggy bank. Oh, wow, you really are broke. Ok, tell you what. You still have to buy insurance, but I'll help you pay 95% of the cost.
Mary:
thank you.
Obama:
I need an aspirin.
Insurance company:
We're not paying for that aspirin.

President Obama is a black man. He’s been held to the same standard as grown ass white men since the day he was born.

Anonymous asked: Re: The Obama dog meat “scandal” the GOP are trying to overshadow Mitt’s animal cruelty with… Obama ate dog meat in Indonesia as a small CHILD, and Mitt strapped his dog on top of a car for 12 hours as a grown-ass ADULT. It’s ridiculous that conservatives are trying to hold a 7-year-old to the same moral standards as a grown man with a family, but what else is new with the GOP?
