Affordable Care Act

Featured in Top Stories

June 28th saw the arrival of the much-anticipated Supreme Court ruling on the affordable health care act, commonly dubbed 'Obamacare.' The high court voted in favor of the controversial bill to either the chagrin or joy of people across the country. In Oklahoma, it was certainly more of the former, as lawmakers had held off on creating a healthcare exchange in compliance with the law, figuring it would be overturned. Now with the law moving forward, state legislators must figure out where Oklahoma goes from here in the land of health care.

The Supreme Court upheld most of the affordable health care act this week, but the repercussions will be rolling out for weeks to come, as many states--including Oklahoma--have not yet moved to comply with the law. We speak with experts about the law and what it means. This week also saw the primary election occur on Tuesday night, and Steve Bennett looks at who was elected, who wasn't, and what that means for Oklahoma politics. We also explore underage drinking, and the programs enacted by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services that are making an impact. OSU is training a different kind of doctor, and we get our hands on some noodling action, on this episode of the ONR.

The Honor Flights program was started to take World War II veterans to the nation's capitol, so they might see the monuments built out of respect and gratitude for their generations' sacrifice.
