A Must-Read Analysis of ObamaCare
on October 14, 2010
In writing this book, Peter Ferrara and the Heartland Institute have done what I would have thought was impossible. In 66 pages, they have presented a ringing indictment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare) and its companion laws. In this book, you will find a comprehensive summary of the law, its unintended (and intended) consequences, and common-sense alternatives that have been on the table for years.
As someone deeply involved in health care issues on a political and business level, I have spent almost every waking minute since March, 2010, working to understand where my profession is headed. On every single page of this book, I found new insights, new research, and new clarity. Bottom line is that we are headed for a true disaster for our health care, our economy, and our personal freedoms. The chilling nature of the changes are enough to keep one up at night.
In regards to style, this is an immensely approachable book. I found the writing style to be extremely straightforward and understandable. The citations are impeccably researched and referenced. In fact, I was so engrossed I read the entire thing at one sitting. My fingers are still stained with ink from the pen that I used to underline and annotate (usually with phrases like "yes!" and "OH NO!").
I have ordered a full case of these in order to hand out to my friends and physician acquaintances. Moreover, I intend to carry my personal copy every single day until ObamaCare is repealed.
For anyone who cares about their health and their country (especially you politicians out there), this is a MUST READ book.
