This is not clear.: The person involved is hopefully normal when it comes to cognitive skills and not mentally challenged. If this is true it is not clear as to the cause. The patient may have a congenital abnormality of some type. One type is fetal alcohol syndrome which can present with odd shaped head and facies. If this is bothersome I would see the doctor and ask questions. May need referral to geneticist.

Many concerns: It's hard to answer succinctly but some common concerns include both that the affordable care act didn't go far enough (for example, didn't provide universal health coverage0 and that it went too far (required everyone to obtain health coverage). There's also a lot of disagreement about how some of the changes will be paid for and whether the cost of healthcare will increase or decrease.

Actually, rights are inherently based on preventing actions of others (e.g. I have the right to be free of harm by another). Rights cannot be conferred to force others to do things (e.g. take money from people using the police force of the state). Healthcare is a service, not a right. This is a simple philosophical principle.

I have headache in my head what I have to do?

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons. For the run of the mill dull headache, i usually like to try some Ibuprofen and/or tylenol (acetaminophen) first and see how it feels after an hour or so.
