Dear President Obama,

I’ve been uninsured since 2001. I’d been working for 16 years in the same packing house. Over that time I hurt my back and my feet on the cement floors, causing nerve damage in both feet. I can’t work there with those kinds of problems and so I’ve started doing landscaping and other odd jobs to fill the economic gaps. Part-time work rarely offers health insurance though and doesn’t pay enough for me to buy an individual plan.
