Letter: Obamacare Is Gaining

To the Editor:

Ron Willoughby (“Shaheen and Global Ban on Guns,” Forum, April 14) expects New Hampshire readers to be shocked because Sen. Jeanne Shaheen supported a U.N. resolution urging nations to restrict the importation and exportation of lethal weapons. Then, horror of horrors, Willoughby tells us that Sen. Shaheen voted for “Obamacare.”

Willoughby should know that, now that the Affordable Care Act is operable and more than 8 million people have signed up, the latest polling shows that a majority either favor the law or wish it were stronger (single-payer). A minority want to return to the disasters that occurred to many people and families before the Affordable Care Act was passed.
