There’s something missing from our current debate about national health care. Too few are talking about actual health. We lament the red tape, the gaps in insurance coverage and the costs that seem to escalate daily. But we often forget the central point: Our own individual health and well being. How can Americans be healthier, feel better and live longer?
Well, cheers to former state Sen. Tom Patterson (Opinion 2, Sunday) for finding a new approach in the Republican battle against federal health care legislation, but jeers for a somewhat ridiculous and wholly specious argument based on states' rights.

Conservatives really wanted a fight about religious freedom. It appeared to be an easy win: turn an ObamaCare mandate that insurers cover birth control into a war on religion. The GOP, void of any ideas Obama hasn’t contaminated by agreeing with, finds itself in an election year frantically looking for a bold battle cry. That sweet hot button issue that can excite their party and (hopefully) win them the White House (or maybe the Senate).

ANNANDALE, Va. — President Barack Obama wanted to put a human face on his plans to overhaul health care, and a Virginia supporter did just that Wednesday. Fighting back tears, Debby Smith, 53, told Obama of her kidney cancer and her inability to obtain health insurance or hold a job. The president hugged her — she's a volunteer for his political operation — and called her "exhibit A" in an unsustainable system that is too expensive and complex for millions of Americans.

I am astounded that the EVT would publish the commentary by Susan Stamper Brown regarding the Affordable Care Act. I fully understand everyone’s right to free speech, but this commentary is so full of falsehoods, innuendo, half-truth, and outright lies as to be a farce. Publishing this commentary is pretty much the same as supporting the right to yell fire in a crowded theater.
WASHINGTON — Some are already anticipating the Supreme Court's ruling on President Barack Obama's health care law as the "decision of the century." But the justices are unlikely to have the last word on America's tangled efforts to address health care woes. The problems of high medical costs, widespread waste, and tens of millions of people without insurance will require Congress and the president to keep looking for answers, whether or not the Affordable Care Act passes the test of constitutionality.
Austin Hill: Terry Goddard, this is your moment. Arizonans need you to step up.

To all who are clamoring about not providing birth control because it’s against a particular religious belief, think about this: Let’s say a religion (i.e. Catholicism, Mormonism, etc..) believes that no one should be having sex out of wedlock. Let’s say that leaders of this religion decide that since any single people who contract a venereal disease obviously are having sex out of wedlock, they’re going to refuse to cover the treatment for VD contracted by single people. How many would be in favor of denying health care and/or antibiotics to people who might die without them? It’s the same argument that’s being made over birth control. Do we really want to decide who’s entitled to health care based on religion? It’s a slippery slope people.

Dr. Eric Novack: If you had even a few minutes last week to watch President Barack Obama’s “health care summit,” you saw quite the spectacle: The president of the United States and the leaders of both political parties arguing over microphone time and getting nowhere fast on what most of us agree is one of America’s top priorities. Reforming our nation’s broken health care system.
