I've had people tell me on the DP that Obamacare

really isn't all that big of a deal. That we should concentrate on more important things such as the drug war, our wars in the Middle East, the Patriot Act, the NDAA, etc.

The problem with that thinking is that all of those things only affect a small percentage of the population. They're all bad and I am as much against them as anyone here. But, the drug war doesn't affect you if you don't do drugs, the wars in the Middle East don't affect you if you aren't over there or have a family member or close friend who is and even then, your family member or friend may not suffer at all from it. The Patriot Act probably hasn't affected even half of one percent of our total population, and so far I don't think the NDAA has affected a single person yet.

Obamacare affects all of us because we all have to work and breathe in this country.
