The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (“Obamacare”) is a major step forward in the improvement of health care and community health status in this country. I speak from the perspective of

Champions of Obamacare want Americans to believe the president’s re-election ended the battle over the law. It did no such thing. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is heavily dependent on the states for its implementation.

"Obamacare" is in the balance, and with this Supreme Court, we should be concerned that political ideology will come before constitutionality.

It’s time! It is long overdue. It is long past time the news media discontinued the use of the derogatory term “Obamacare.” It is an invented term created for the single purpose of denigrating the law of the land. A law passed by Congress and signed into law by the president of the United States is the law of the land. It is a term created by an ultra-conservative right to enable it to say, “If you are not against Obamacare you are not a true conservative.”

A few weeks ago I chanced upon a Canadian at the Miller Hill Mall. She told me that Canada’s health care suits her just fine. When I asked her what we have in America, she laughed and told me she thinks when it comes to health care Americans are just plain nuts.

Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union and most of the big-moneyed media on TV and in radio, newspapers and magazines, along with their allies in Hollywood and the Obama administration, are terribly dishonest, bigoted and vicious.

As a primary-care physician, I celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act may simply be called “Obamacare,” but no one calls it simple.

I strongly favor the Affordable Care Act, commonly labeled “Obamacare.” I hope it ultimately leads to single-payer health care for everyone. Widely published opinions, statistics and projections support this view.

It’s the judiciary’s Nixon-to-China: Chief Justice John Roberts joins the liberal wing of the Supreme Court and upholds the constitutionality of Obamacare. How? By pulling off one of the great constitutional finesses of all time.

With the June 28 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court affirming the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111 - 148), which many call “Obamacare” (with most citizens being totally unaware as to what this bill exactly provides), I respectfully ask News Tribune readers to spend some time to read this historic legislation.

Do you know anyone over 65 who doesn’t appreciate Medicare? Before it went into effect in 1966 there were numerous dire predictions that it would be a wasteful, socialized, big-government boondoggle from Washington. This sounds just like current alarms about the Affordable Care Act, sometimes called Obamacare

The health-care debate rages on. Soon, the U.S. Supreme Court will make a decision on Obamacare. Letters to the editor and Local View columns in the News Tribune have laid out positions for and against the Patient Protection and Affordability Act. As in any debate there are two sides — with meritorious claims for each.

I am enrolled in the Medicare program. Passage of the Affordable Health Care Act (AHA or, derisively, “Obamacare”) stabilized my monthly premiums and provided me with increased benefits. I now have access to an annual “wellness exam” which includes covered screening procedures. The focus is on preventive medicine, and I am pleased with what has been achieved.

Before the Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, or Obamacare, I hypothesized that any decision would energize both ideological bases. If the law were struck down, liberals could run against the Supreme Court and conservatives would argue that President Obama’s signature piece of legislation was unconstitutional. On the other hand, since the law has been upheld, liberals can rejoice while the conservative base will be even more motivated to repeal the law.

States are already struggling to pay their Medicaid bills. Why put taxpayers on the hook to pay even more?

Roe v. Wade: More than 54 million innocent, precious babies torn from the womb, some near their day of birth, under the guise of choice, and yet there are those who strive to save dogs, cats, horses and now wolves.

Where’s the incentive to risk capital to start or expand businesses? The outlook to expand business and hire employees is dismal if the Bush tax breaks are allowed to expire and President Obama follows through with increasing tax rates for the supposed rich.
