Could The Tribune step back for just a minute and talk with Sen. Mike Lee to find out why he is so adamantly opposed to the implementation of Obamacare? Perhaps he knows something about the law that neither The Tribune nor many of its readers may know.

Contrary to what President Obama said last Friday in his press conference, Lee does have an alternative plan. The problem is that he doesn't have the bully pulpit that Obama has and the press frankly doesn't care to know what the plan is. This being said, I think the only way for Americans to truly understand what Obamacare will do is to begin to have it implemented in October as scheduled. Let the voters see for themselves just what the president and the Democrats have given us.

If this law is bad, there will be no place that Obama can run for cover and the press won't be able to protect him.
