Are you asking if we support one or wanting President Obama to help make insurance affordable for all. Yes, I support the insurance affordable for all. My 23 year old daughter needs insurance she can afford. Is that what you meant?

Exactly and they are so limited on what they will cover. Only a certain ammount of office visits and prescriptions a year. My daughter takes 2 every day. Right now she is getting them free from the manufacturers but with the new year thaT may change. So I understand your problems too. Good luck to you in the new year.

I'm not what you're meaning either. Can you explain a little further? I am on Medicare and have a Part D drug coverage, as well as a supplemental policy.
