Michelle Obama: US Health Care is Unacceptable

First Lady Michelle Obama attends an event discussing the need for health insurance reform and its impact on women and families on Friday (September 18) at the White House in Washington, D.C.

“The status quo is unacceptable,” Michelle said. “It is holding women and families back. [Women are] disproportionately affected by this issue because of the roles that we play in families. [And women] are more likely to work part-time, or to work in small companies or businesses that don’t provide any insurance at all.”

Other pictures include President Barack Obama and the First Lady at a ceremony to award the Medal of Honor posthumously to Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti at the White House on September 17. Monti sacrificed his own life in an effort to save a injured comrade while on patrol in Afghanistan June 21, 2006.

Also pictured: Michelle visiting the opening of FRESHFARM‘s newest farmers’ market on September 17. The idea to have a farmers market just a block from the White House came about from Michelle‘s popular “White House Garden” that she started back in March. The garden has inspired people around the world to start growing their own produce and to start buying from the local farmers.
