Letter: Obamacare foes must step aside

It’s so sad that the opponents of meaningful health care reform have such an aversion to facts. Thursday morning a major study from the Kaiser Foundation came out saying that “Obamacare,” also known as the Affordable Care Act, will not only bring down health insurance premiums, but will bring them down even more than expected. This comes not long after a different study showed medical costs began declining in May for the first time since the mid-1970s.

It is time for adamant obstructionists like our Gov. Sean Parnell to either admit they were wrong and implement the reforms from Obamacare, which are already being shown to have a positive effect, or to get out of the way and let somebody new take the reins and do what is in the interests of all Alaskans.
