What hath Obamacare wrought?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Aug 26, 2013

Catholic supporters of Obamacare—and they were, regrettably, many of them—argued that the program, whatever its drawbacks, would make quality health-care coverage more accessible to all Americans. How is that working out? Are there more doctors, more nurses, more hospitals and clinics available, now that the legislation has been approved and billions have been invested? No.

The inimitable Mark Steyn writes:

It requires a perverse genius to construct a “health” “care” “reform” that destroys everything from religious liberty to full-time employment, while requiring multitudes of new tax collectors and other bureaucrats and ever fewer doctors and nurses.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
