To the editor:
In his Oct. 1 column, Jay Fleitman kept referring to the Affordable Care Act as a “bill.” Fleitman wrote, for example, “There is no reason why Republicans as the opposition party should ever accept the legitimacy of this bill or render it any respect.”
The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCares: I like the name in the plural, because President Obama does care.) is the law. It was passed by both Houses of Congress, the “bill” was signed into law by the president of the United States.
It was “tested” before the Supreme Court.
ObamaCares is the law.
The Affordable Care Act is the law. I can’t remember how many times members of the House for Representatives tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but they failed.
Obamacares is the law.
Happy Oct. 1, 2013, the day Americans all have access to affordable health care.
