Letter To the Editor: My Doctor Supports Obamacare

During a recent visit to my doctor I happened to inquire how he felt about the Affordable Care Act – aka ‘Obamacare.’ He said, “I support our country’s new healthcare plan. It’s not perfect and will need adjusting as we find ways we can improve it, but it’s an important first step toward healthcare reform in the U.S.” He added that his office is gearing up with the new technologies necessary, so that when the plan comes fully into effect in 2014 all his patients’ health records will be available if needed by any hospital or doctor in the country. “We need to streamline and we need to bring healthcare costs down, and the ACA will do that,” he said.

Have you asked your doctor how he feels about Obamacare?
