DJP Update 11-25-2014 OP-ED on Alternative to PPACA; Also Dr. Tenery article; Lagniappe: Some tweets not about health system reform
(Sent yesterday but server problem so sending again today after server fixed. Also added links.)

Here is the link at The Daily Caller with the OP-ED written by a former president of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Gerry Healy, and me. Published 11-24-2014.

(Copy and paste links into your browser if it doesn’t show up as a hot link here.)

The OP-ED is on two pages so click page 2 at bottom of first page.

Of course, I did a tweet about it too:

By the way, if you want your own copy of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, ACA, etc.) for review during a discussion, here is a government link that gives you entire law.

The sequence of events and dates of PPACA passage can be found in my 2010 OP-ED:

A retweet involving PPACA and the man who found Professor Gruber videos.

This introduces the world to the person who found all of the Jonathan Gruber videos. I find it fascinating that this man is not a reporter but a guy who did his own research in his space time and scooped all of the press and those in Washington, DC. This man doesn’t want any publicity. He merely wanted to document the record regarding PPACA. He deserves a Pulitzer Prize.
