"You're Naked": Nina Dobrev Joins Pearl Jam As Supporter of Obamacare
Nina Dobrev joins a slew of celebrities who have backed President Obama's healthcare plans.
The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev is the latest high profile support of President Obama's healthcare plans, posing topless with a strategically placed cardboard sign to encourage fans to "get covered."
Dobrev, who says without the insurance "you're naked," praised her homeland of Canada for being at the vanguard of "healthcare for all." The 24-year-old also provided a link to the enrolment site.
Dobrev joins singer John Legend, rockers Pearl Jam and actresses Alyssa Milano and Kerry Washington as stars taking to social network with the hashtag #GetCovered to promote the subsidized health plans.
Passed in 2010, Obamacare is a national law that aims to make health insurance better for people who already have it, and getting health insurance for more of the 60 million people in America who are uninsured. According to Slate, those already insured must now pay for things like prescription drugs, having a baby, mental health care etc.
Families making less than $31,000 yearly could get free Medicaid, while the 20 per cent who don't have private insurance and don't qualify for Medicare (usually for disabled and the elderly) will have to buy health insurance from an online government superstar.
President Obama Is Attempting To Revolutionize American Healthcare
Pearl Jam's support for Obamacare began when guitarist Mike McCready urged voters to casr their ballot for President Obama last year. McCready suffers from Crohn's disease, a chronic illness of the gastrointestinal tract.
Speaking to ABC in 2012, the musician explained, "I've been denied coverage two times in my life. Because of President Obama's Affordable Care Act, we're about to have health care for everyone. It really means that, you know, for myself, I have a pre-existing condition and I feel like I have some hope. Anybody that doesn't have the kind of means that I have will have it too."
