Health Care

Use for the overall health care issue and the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Support the Roll-Out of the ACA (aka 'Obamacare')

ProgressOhio is promoting some activities to support the 'Obamacare' roll-out that begins on October 1, 2013, the first day that individuals can sign up and enroll for health insurance through the health care exchanges.

Call for Health Care Stories

The Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare") is still being rolled out. As more people gain access to health insurance and health care improves, UAPA would like to gather stories about how you or your family have benefited.

Have you been able to get insurance when you previously were unable because of a preexisting condition? Were you able to keep your 23- or 24-year-old son or daughter on your policy?

Letter to the Editor - Supreme Court Affirms 'Obamacare'

Columbus Dispatch,

July 4, 2012

Over the past few days, since the recent Supreme Court decision affirming ObamaCare, several letters have appeared in the Dispatch questioning not only the Court’s decision but also conservative Chief Justice John Roberts’ courageous deciding vote to uphold the law’s constitutionality.

The most prominent criticisms were in the lead editorial in Sunday’s paper.

Letter to the Editor - A Better Level of Care

Columbus Dispatch,

July 4, 2012

In Stewart Aron’s letter, (Monday, July 1), he laments that those of us in our 70’s and 80’s will have a diminished life expectancy because with the rationed care in ObamaCare we cannot expect the same level of care we now have.

Please, Stew, change the channel.  Fox News lies.

It’s the insurance company bureaucrats that ration care not the government.  That’s one of the main reasons ObamaCare was needed.

Letter to the Editor - On Contraception and Freedom of Conscience

Published in the Columbus Dispatch in February 2012.

The outcry about the mandate to include contraception among covered preventive services tries to frame it as an assault on separation of church and state. As an ex-Catholic, I fully understand the church's position on contraception and abortion, and defend its right to preach its creed to the faithful.

Letter to the Editor - On the Affordable Care Act

Letter submitted to the Columbus Dispatch.

Peggy O’Brien, in her letter, April 7th, clearly demonstrates, and perpetuates, a problematic fact of modern political life.  If you repeat a lie often enough, and inject a little paranoia, people will believe it.  Unfortunately most of us don’t bother to check the facts when the lie is told with authority.  But I don’t really blame her.  She has probably heard the lies often enough that she believes them.
