The Republican Party is the party of "gloom and doom" ("Obamacare is here to stay," Opinion, Aug. 19). All through the 2012 presidential campaign, Republican politicians, Fox News, right-wing talk radio and other conservative media said over and over that Barack Obama was a terrible president, apparently believing that if they said it enough, voters would think it must be true. Obama's re-election showed a voting majority thought Obama was a good president.

Now, congressional Republicans and their kowtowing media propagandists are doing the same thing with Obamacare, saying ad nauseam how Obamacare is bad and that it must be repealed. I believe that once Obamacare is fully implemented, the American people will like it. How could anyone oppose 30 million more people having health care coverage? Some years ago, when the Family Leave Act was being debated, Republicans opposed it, saying it would hurt business. The act passed, is still in effect and did not hurt business.
