Curmudgeon's Corner: Health care decision will degrade quality of care (OPINION)

July 18, 2012

The recent U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 decision upholding that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -a/k/a “Obamacare”- is constitutional has been both praised and vilified. The non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation claims that health care costs will be curbed when the law’s provisions become fully effective in 2014. Conversely, a partner with a New York City law firm specializing in employer benefit plans says, “As more of the requirements [of health care reform] develop, the cost of insurance will go up.”

WEST WARWICK — Major Richard Ramsay of the West Warwick Police Department has accepted a job offer as the new Police Chief of West Greenwich as he focuses on the advancement of his career.

Maj. Ramsay, who’s been with West Warwick for 23 years, began his career as an officer and worked his way up to the second highest position in the department.
