The old expression is, “if you want to get out of the rat race, you have to let go of the cheese.” In this case, it’s moldy cheese. So, if you’re confused about all you’re hearing about the repeal of Obamacare, today we explain how you can let go of the cheese and end up in better shape.

On this episode of Home Front, we discuss the repeal of Obamacare with Abigail Nobel. Abigail understands both the medical and political aspects of of this issue, having worked many years in the healthcare profession and holding both a Bachelor of Science in nursing and a Master of Arts in politics. Abigail is currently a public speaker, health policy nurse consultant and publishes articles on health related matters at her website, Dewdrops of Health.

In a short time, Obamacare will be back in the news. The US Supreme Court is about to announce its OPINION on whether the national government can subsidize medical insurance for people living in states that did not meet the criteria in the Obamacare law.

The Court is in an interesting position and even the best pundits are having trouble coming to a consensus on what to think. If the Court rules that all citizens of all states can get the money, they would be inventing rules in the law that don’t exist. Continue reading
