President writes Go Obamacare! on Iowa med student lab coat

University of Iowa medical student Shadee Giurgius’s white lab coat has new significance.
President Barack Obama, in Iowa City today for a campaign rally, took a black marker and wrote “Go Obamacare!” and signed his autograph, Giurgius said.
Obamacare is the term opponents coined for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a controversial health care overhaul that Obama signed into law in 2010. To cut the number of uninsured Americans, it will require almost everyone to carry health insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law, saying the so-called individual mandate is within Congress’s powers.
But repeal of the law is a rallying cry for Republicans and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who also campaigned in Iowa today.
