“By affirming the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. Supreme Court has ensured that hard-working Californians from all walks of life will have access to health insurance and health care services,” Benson Forer said. “The impact on our patients is extraordinary: over half of the 25,000 patients we see each year at Venice Family Clinic will have access to Medicaid in 2014."

The operative word
I have never read so confounding and distorting of times and
tenses in one sentence.
"The impact is extraordinary. . .over half our
patients will have access. . ."
How can there be an impact now if the
effect do not arise until two years later?
Does the federal government
every deliver on anything that it promises? The current administration is
pregnant with broken promises which have emerged still-born from Congress and
have deadened our economy.
President Obama claimed that American
troops would be out of Afghanistan -- we still have troops stationed in Kabul
and throughout the tribal-troubled rural areas.
Congressman Henry Waxman,
who is running in a new Congressional District which includes Playa del Rey and
Santa Monica, claimed that the United States is not broke, even though we are
hurting under multi-trillion dollar deficits and a national debt which is
spooking investors and discouraging future bond-holders.
and Congressman Waxman, chief architects of the Patient Protection and

or keep their jobs, while the population of impoverished and dependent is
growing at a disturbing rate. Do the voters of the Santa Monica Bay want to live
in a banana republic where a precious, specious few have money while everyone is
poor and dependent on the government?
President Obama and Congressman
Waxman claimed that health premiums would go down with the passage of their
signature legislation. Rates are going up an average of
Obama-WaxmanCare promised that millions of Americans would be
allowed to keep their coverage. Millions are about to lose their health
insurance once the mandate comes to effect. No matter how many laws and mandates
that the federal government passes, state force cannot create the requisite
supply to meet the demand of a greater number of insured. For this reason, more
carriers are dropping coverage or exiting the insurance market
Obama-WaxmanCare is unprotecting, unaffordable, and
uncaring, a token of the broken promises of our President and a local
Congressman who are expanding state power while actually diminishing our rights
and limiting access to affordable health care.
The voters of the Santa
Monica Bay, from Rancho Palos Verdes to Malibu, we must send a message to
Washington: Stop the spending! Save our Nation!
