middle class and lost benefits!

When my husband and I chose raising our child as a priority over my time-consuming, demanding job, we eventually found ourselves without good health care benefits.

Although we are still relatively young (mid 40s) and are quite healthy, we have high deductibles (due to preexisting conditions) that discourage us from seeking regular health care.

The healthcare options for teachers (me) and small business owners (my husband) are not serving us. It is unjust that we have to make this kind of choice between a good family environment and good health care! I see Obamacare as a step in the right direction and hope to see other benefits for families who continue to be main contributors to our economy and society.
