Greensboro benefits consultant Rob Luisana has an unusually sane, balanced discussion of the pros and cons of the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare, as its opponents like to call it). It’s worth a read.

Lost in many conversations about health care is the important fact that up until 2014, the number of uninsured individuals was rising each year.

When I was a health care reporter at the Triad Business Journal, Rob was a source for stories on employee benefits and health insurance. His balanced approach (and accessibility) were a big part of what made him such a helpful source.
