Health Law Upheld

A chief justice branded a turncoat,
a constitutional clash,
a victory for Obama.

The democrats most ambitious
social legislation in a decade—

Constitutional experts praised the chief justice
for rising to the occasion
in such a momentous case.

An impressive feat of statesmanship.
Legal analysis, not politics,
controlled the decision.

The courts surprise ruling
could change voter attitudes
on a landmark piece of legislation.

Congress set out to remedy a problem—
the problem of health care being beyond
the reach of many Americans.

The Patient Protection
and Affordable Care Act
is the prescription.

Every now and then someone does the right thing.  Obama did the right thing when he reformed the health-care insurance system.  Judge John Roberts did the right thing when he found the legislation constitutional.

This act changes nothing between you and your doctor.  Except, if you didn’t have a doctor before, now maybe you can afford to see one.  This act is not about health-care reform; it is about health-care-insurance reform.
