The couple in the picture with the Obamas is Dr. Steve and Jill Kraus. Dr. Krause is a doctor of chiropractic, and is an Iowa Delegate to the American Chiropractic Association. Obama visited Dr. Krause twice at his clinic in Carroll, Iowa during the campaign.

OK, I won't keep you waiting. Here is a bit of what our President wrote to the American Chiropractic Association when he was a candidate for the presidency:

"We need to knock down unreasonable barriers of access and discriminatory insurance coverage so Americans in need of quality chiropractic care can access it without difficulty. We need to expand the range of chiropractic services covered by Medicare, facilitate integration of doctors of chiropractic into the health care systems of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, and allow commission of doctors of chiropractic as officers in the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service. And again, under my health care plan, many, if not all, chiropractic services would be included in the benefit package offered in the public plan."

And here is the link to the complete letter.
