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 - The Republican Health Care Plan

Columbus Dispatch

July 4, 2012

In his letter, (Sunday, July 1), it is obvious that Benjamin Markowitz isn’t happy with the Supreme Court’s ruling that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional.  He’s certainly entitled to his opinion.

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.

Celeste: Streamline help for vets (Letter to the Editor)

Everybody wants to help our Iraq War veterans, and that's the problem. Is the right kind of help behind Door No. 1, Door No. 2, or Door No. 3? Or maybe 4 or 5?
