10. Wow. His personal history

 

is that of someone who doesn't think very clearly about things that really matter to him:
20 years old, married a girl who he didn't love at 17 because she had a kid with another guy who left her and had nowhere to turn, is expecting his fourth kid soon

Maybe you ought to find out what kind of health care plan he currently has in place. I'll bet none at all, other than perhaps Medicaid. If you can, over the rest of the summer, just point out to him what Obama and the Democrats have done and will do for him and his family, while showing how they Republicans will do their best to abandon him and his family, then maybe you'll change that voter.

I have a friend, now 70 years old, retired, doing okay in retirement. Her son is married to a right-winger, and lately my friend has taken up telling them that she may well have to move in with them in a few years if Medicare and Social Security get cut. She also tells them how much her medications cost (and she's not on all that many, compared to many her age) and again suggests that they may have to pay for them in a few years. No doubt none of this will change how those two think, but one can hope.
