    Election Day 'I Voted' challenge

    tmk1916 and 14 other iReporters contributed to Open Story: 'I Voted' Election 2012

    I Voted in Nebraska!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     tmk1916 says she voted for President Obama because her son was born with a congenital heart defect, and she says the President's Affordable Care Act does not discriminate against her son's medical condition. 'By age 10, he has had 3 open-heart surgeries and 2 heart cauterizations. His heart will never be "fixed" but he can live a full, long life,' she said. 'President Obama's actions throughout the past 4 years have outweighed his words. The Affordable Care Act says that my son's heart defect will not be met with rejection and that his survival will not be met with denial.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    I voted for President Obama because "Obamacare" does not discriminate against my son's congenital heart defect. He is one of over 2 million Americans living with a congenital heart defect.  His fight for survival through multiple open-heart surgeries and heart catherizations will not be met with rejection. Our insurance carrier will not declare that his penalty for survival will be a limited life.
