Rasmussen Reports conducted polling of the American people's views of the Supreme Court following the court's decision on ObamaCare. Rasumussen's findings include the following: "A growing number now believe that the high court is too liberal and that justices pursue their own agenda rather than acting impartially. A week ago, 36% said the court was doing a good or an excellent job. That’s down to 33% today. However, the big change is a rise in negative perceptions. Today, 28% say the Supreme Court is doing a poor job. That’s up 11 points over the past week."
In case you missed it, last week D4PC's Dr. Hal Scherz, MD was a guest on a radio show in which he discussed the impact of ObamaCare on the doctor patient relationship and the future of delivery of medicine.
Our own Dr. Meg Edison, VP of the Michigan state chapter, has invested the time to create a stirring video about what we as doctors and concerned citizens should do about Obamacare. We hope you will invest the time to watch it:

Heritage Foundation: The Case Against Obamacare
Building on decades of Heritage research, The Case Against Obamacare: A Health Care Policy Series for the 112th Congress examines 15 key provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Each report:
- Cites specific sections of the 2,700-page health care law
- Provides detailed analysis of specific Obamacare provisions
- Identifies key principles for a better way to reform health care
The unmistakable conclusion of this series is that Obamacare must be fully repealed. Congress cannot build sound market-based health care reform on the flawed foundation of this health care law. Until it can be repealed, Congress must employ its full powers authorized by the Constitution to:
- De-fund the new law’s critical aspects
- Block any further provisions from going into effect
- Engage in aggressive oversight of Obamacare – its regulations and implementation.
