The Sun-Gazette’s continued attacks on Obamacare – like the recent cartoon calling it “snake oil” – mislead people and keep them from finding out the very real benefits of the Affordable Care Act, which will provide good, affordable coverage for millions who are now uninsured, limit out-of-pocket expenses for families with limited means, and offer free preventive care for everyone.

Gov. Corbett’s recent decision to reject Medicaid expansion, which the Supreme Court gave states the right to do, is particularly destructive for the 700,000 hardworking Pennsylvanians who were slated to get coverage next year under the Affordable Care Act. Turning down the $43 billion in federal funds that’s already set aside for Pennsylvania will leave all those people uninsured and throw away an opportunity to create hundreds of thousands of jobs statewide.
