Some news networks spent the last few days doubting and belittling Obamacare’s apparent success in enrolling more than 7 million Americans who had no health insurance, poor coverage or high rates.

The independent Congressional Budget Office estimates that an additional 3 million young Americans have been able to keep insurance under their parents’ policies.

I just cannot believe anyone would object to a new law, regardless of origin, that will save lives and improve the health of more than 10 million fellow Americans.

Have we degenerated to the point where we have no compassion for our fellow men, women and children?

— Dennis Tilly, Weatherford
