Hyperbolic overdrive


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
The conservative response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare featured in Chicken-Fried News’ “Harumph, harumph, harumph” (June 28, okgazette.com) is a string of some of the most rhetorical and hyperbolic comments I’ve ever read.

Playing snow day roulette


Letters to the Editor

Todd Fagin
Many a student has undoubtedly played a game of “snow day roulette” in which the student opts to postpone completing homework under the hope inclement weather will result in a school closing. If the forecast is wrong or the school otherwise remains open, the student is often in quite a predicament.

The walls of Lisa Morrow’s apartment are lined with photographs of her four grandchildren and other family members. In the pictures that include Morrow, one can make out only the faintest hint of a smile.

Don’t tread on us

As The Washington Post mused recently, we Oklahomans are a rebellious lot who like to go against the grain, and likely will fight snaggletoothed and nail against signing up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Disaster is ahead for Obamacare


Commentary

Mike Brake
Absent a resounding Republican victory this fall, liberals will get their big wish when Obamacare begins taking effect early in 2013. Under the “be careful what you wish for” rubric, it may be useful to look ahead. What can Oklahomans expect from Obamacare?

Happy Canadians


Letters to the Editor

John Downard
Mike Brake (Commentary, “Point: Disaster is ahead for Obamacare,” Aug. 8, Oklahoma Gazette) tells us that he doesn’t like government health care and that in Canada, with a government system that covers everyone, dogs can get a hip replacement in under a week while humans may have to wait two or three years.

Wait for it

Oklahoma’s delay in creating a health care exchange likely means it will be established by the feds.


News

Shelly Hickman
State leaders might have lost what some said was a high-stakes gamble when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate to purchase health insurance. As a result, a health care exchange required under the ACA will have to be established for Oklahoma, which some observers say means it is likely the federal government will be the entity creating it.
