  • Obamacare to have a major impact on businesses, families

    Many Lancaster Republicans have contacted me to express their displeasure at the recent column by Phil Noble, which attacked Republican legislators for their opposition to Obamacare.

    While that is understandable, trying to suggest that those opposed to Obamacare are on the same level as racists and those who provoked a bloody civil war, is inexcusable and just plain wrong.
