If you don’t own the book already, the chapter-by-chapter notes below will give you a good idea of why you should.

Obamacare is not a done deal!
It still can and must be rolled back because:
  • It’s based on false premises.
    • The US healthcare system, for all its warts, is still the best that yet exists in the world.
  • It harms more than it solves.
    • “Pass it to find out what’s in it”? Now that it has passed, you won’t believe what’s in it!
  • It will never fulfill its advertised promises.
    • Health insurance on average has already become $5,500 more expensive than expected.
    • You can’t keep the doctor you like if (s)he’s quitting.
    • You can’t keep the plan you like if your employer drops it or it doesn’t meet the approval of the HHS.
    • Command-and-control economies have failed and will always fail, no matter the party in charge.
  • Living under this law’s regime will be much dearer still than the cost of fighting it to the bitter end.

The USA needs real reform that will work.

Whether you are a patient, a doctor, a public official, a political activist or just a regular guy or gal who can’t understand what the fuss is all about, this plain-language citizen pamphlet will give you the intellectual ammunition to understand our predicament and to defend your rights, your prosperity and your country.
