In 1975 Edward Abbey wrote his most famous literary work, The Monkey Wrench Gang. It postulated a vision of environmental activism that eventually manifested world-wide. Within two decades the environmental community had gone on the offense to defend owls and prevent bulldozers from building logging roads. They burned ski run chalets and climbed trees to prevent redwoods from being cut. I believe that the recent election of opposition threatens to monkey-wrench Obamacare, aka, the Affordable Care Act.
Whether by design or coincidence, rural residents can expect to take it in the pocketbook as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka “ObamaCare”) takes effect over the next 15 months.
