To my friends and relatives out there thinking of voting for Romney

To my friends and relatives out there thinking of voting for Romney (and I know you are out there) please note that if Romney is successful in helping repeal Obamacare I would not be able to get affordable health insurance if I move back to the U.S., because since May I now have a pre-existing condition.

I’ve not been a shirker. I pay over $6,000 a year for my health insurance. But my expensive U.S. ex-pat health insurance policy is not employee-based so it is not COBRA eligible and is only valid if I live outside the U.S. more than 6 months each year.

Romney has no plan to help people with pre-existing conditions obtain affordable health insurance. In the first presidential debate he lied an said he did, but his own campaign was forced to “fact check” him within the hour. He does not have any plan for this. I would go broke if I moved back to the U.S. and got sick.

When Obamacare goes into full effect in 2014 it will make a real difference in my life and in the lives of tens of millions of others whose affordable health insurance is out of reach or at risk. And more people are at risk than even they realize.

So please think of Doug when voting! Thanks! (^_^)
