There are two major reasons I am voting for Obama:
1. As a woman, I have the right to make my own health care decisions. Congress has no place making those decisions FOR me.
2. I am a student who doesn’t have the option of asking parents for money. My father has been on SSDI for most of my life, and my mother (who was also on SSDI) passed away in October. As it stands, my financial aid and minimum wage job barely cover tuition as a commuter- never mind living anywhere but home. Without federal aid, higher education would never be within my grasp.
I fear what would happen to me, and the many others in my shoes, if we lose this election.
